    Very Good

    Didn't like staying here-a "nickel and dime" hostel, they charge for everything. Needed a blanket because the AC was so cold and they asked 10R for it (they ended up not)-they check your sheets before returning deposit to make sure they're clean. That just creates bad atmosphere to me, esp considering how much I spent just to stay here. Brekkie (15R) is just okay. Laundry can take over 24 hours. 5p dorm really cramped, lockers awkward/loud, common space too hot bc no roof covering
