The location is great. The building needs updated and needs to organize more events.


It's pretty safe environment, convenient transportation. Friendly and lovely boss and staffs . Also well equipped kitchen, I could cook anything I want. Really good price for the service they offer. Worth a try!!!!!

The worst part was the service: the owner was quite rude and expected guests to automatically know the rules of the hostel, even though he did not explain how things worked. The spring mattresses on the bunk beds squeaked at every minor movement, so there was quite a bit of noise during the night, no matter how careful guests were. There were no safes or lockers in which to store valuables/luggage, so I had to carry a lot of stuff around with me. According to the owner, theft is a non-issue?!


the location was really good. but other than that, breakfast was only a pack of bread and it seemed like everyone can live in that hostel, not exactly "international students". i only stayed for one night, which was okay. not recommended for staying longer than that.
