    Fun to be close to the park and enjoyed ethnic restaurants and a 24 hour friendly grocery store with $1 coffee nearby.

    Location is great, staff were helpful, it's not the most lively hostel if that’s what your looking for or if you’re looking to meet other travellers this place might not be for you, but beds are comfy, WiFi’s good, and there was never a wait for showers.

    Honestly this was not a stellar experience, it meant my basic requirements of a place to sleep, but it truly provided nothing more than that. I wouldn't tell people to not stay here, but just be aware that standards should be lowered a bit.

    This is the worst hostel that ever backpacker can ever image. The showers are very dirty, filthy, disgusting. You can notice that the fungi is ingrained to the wall in the showers. This hostel does not have refrigerator neither Kitchen, no filter water, and having a refrigerator is the most important thing in a hostel which is placed in an overpriced city. I have been in many backpackers in the world and this is the worst I have ever been to. I do not recommend at all.

    Your hostel was not worth the 50 dollars per night that you charged me each night. You didnt offer coffee or tea, or any kind of cereal for breakfast lile every hostel I have been to does this. Most importantly you didnt have any events on Friday or Saturday nights while I was there and those ecenings are the best opportunity to meet fellow travellers. Lastly and most importantly I inytended to cook for myself in the hostels kitchen to avoid going to buy my meals. There wasnt a working stove

    Though the location was good, relatively safe and close to transport, the facilities left a lot to be desired. Only one out of three of the showers worked, others were either scorching or freezing. If you don’t care about privacy, I guess the shower curtain with no ledge for your belongings would be okay. We also noticed that only 6 beds were permitted by the city in the room, however, remarkably there were 8 beds- luckily there was no fire. Access cards were very temperamental.

    It wasn’t the best hostel, and the money wasn’t worth it either. There’s only one plug outlet for each room, and they did not even thought putting more. They don’t have a fridge either, so all of my food got spoiled. There’s also no lock in the luggage storage room, I thought it’ll be secure. Not a good recommendation. I won’t come back there

    Fine, if you just need a bed & nothing more. Other than the guy on Night Shift, staff had nil care or customer service. Arrived to find my bank card had already been charged when, I wanted to pay in cash. Told they couldn't refund it, as there was no manager around. Locked out of the room the next morning, as the key card sensor was out of battery! Treated as if this was my fault and told it would take 30 mins to recharge before I could go back to sleep! Still not fixed 4 hrs later! More to say!

    I went to sleep in my bed and someone else who was already in the room decided they wanted to sleep in my made up bed. I went downstairs to get clean sheets and a blanket and all they could offer to me was sheets and no blanket. Checking in took ages bc they ran out of keys so I had to wait for a period of time before I could get into my room and also get a key.
