very nice hostel! (or actually hotel). the rooms where nice, the beds good, the bathroom really nice and clean. the only minor thing that its a bit of a walk to the old-town, but thats where busses are for.(stops right in front of hostel)

our room was quite clean, and exceeded expectation, it had wifi and airco , so no complaints there. the staff was friendly and helpful. the place is in a good spot in downtown hanoi. downs? yes, the place does not have an elevator. this might be mentioned somewhere, however i find it mention worthy as it is something to consider if someone less vital then we were. (wasnt an issue for us.)

good hostel in a former hotel? it is in a decent location, lots of food places around. the dorm i stayed in was quiet and had a lovely airco which is needed in KL. a special note in this review to the quite helpful and very nice night-staff-woman, she makes a difference in the hostel! (the day woman as well, the male not so much, as he could not car eless ) downs? not really, it is close to downtown with the public transport. walking is a nightmare but that is not relevant to hostel.

a good hostel in central HK the dorm is quite spacious, an has ac. downside? the toilet is combined with the bathroom, hence if you need to go if someone is showering, that means going outside the room and to the 2nd level (i stayed on the 9th). but apart from that it was quite good.

A good hostel at a good location. The bar attached to the hostel is also quite nice, staff is friendly as are the visitors there. also there are plenty food places around there. the rooms are quite clean, and good (slept in a 4p mixed dorm) it has airco. downs? not really, a good hostel! (altough we heard that last minute reservations / extentions are almost impossible / quite hard)

very good hostel, (most likely one of the best that i sayed in over the last years). pro's: good very well equipped kitchen, free (american / basic) breakfast. great activities (walking tour was quite nice, and the pub crawl too). beds and rooms where clean and good. con: i would not recommend the hostel in the hight of summer due to lack of ac. (during my stay the room that i was in was quite warm, as in: fan was needed) and that was with 22c out price is a bit higher then usual but worth it.

an ok hostel. rooms are clean. kitchen/facilities are good. location is good. minpoints: the noise(i know nyc is the city that never sleeps, but due to the lack of isolation on the room i was in neither did i). staff where friendly, altough i am a bit disapointed that they let the (computer) system lead them. (in this instance with bed assignment. they were not able to accomodate a bed change for me due to a medical issue). a clear example of "i say yes but computer says no"

good hostel, located in downtown, lots of atractions and sites on walking distance, shops and bars on walking distance. had a good stay. staff was ok. breakfast was included + , con was the noise of a nearby construction site which gave (on friday morning@0700) a lot of noise) (so i hope for guests staying there that they'll finish their work quickly.)

View Property Reply

Thanks for the feedback. There is a lot of construction going on in downtown Toronto at the moment which cannot be avoided. Unfortunately if you plan to stay downtown you will experience this noise. We do provide free earplugs at reception if needed!
