    Great location, the facilties are excellent but this check in process is an absolute awful. If it's going to insist on doing self-check in the computer really ought to be updated, it feels like something from the 80s. Plus it told me I was in room 'superior 63 4 4' which I had to call up and learn meant room 4, bed 4. Like somehow guests are supposed to be able to tell that?

    It was fine for my purposes. The only thing I found a problem with is that their after hours phone to pick up your luggage does not work. Second time lucky, some lady who couldn't speak english answered and told me I called wrong number.

    Overall fine. Absolutely no social life and only one useless kitchen for all rooms. We barely saw the staff, who did not talk to us. The facilities are cleaned daily, but the rooms are not particularly clean. The 6-bed doorms lack space. The hostel is in the middle of Chinatown, which means many possibilities for transportation and sightseeing, but it is incredibly cramped. Stay at this hostel, if you dont plan on spending any time there besides when sleeping.

    Location was amazing!!! Right in Chinatown. However, showers were cold, room was extremely basic. Staff were nice to speak to when we did see them though!

    The late check in process on the kiosk was a bit annoying and unsatisfactory. Bathrooms were dirty, smelly and unsatisfactory as well. Wouldn’t go back to this particular hostel again.

    The hostel had no check in desk only a self check in machine. I put my name and booking number in but it couldn’t find my booking. There was a phone by the machine with two numbers to call for help checking in. One of them was an incorrect number and the other one someone answered saying wrong number then hung up. I had no choice but to find and pay for another hostel which cost me $30 but this hostel has still charged my bank account $19 for the night even though I couldn’t get in there.
