    Great value for money. Clean and comfy hostel. Only downside is the one shower between all guests. We were greeted by a Korean man who went out of his way to help us however on our last night we stayed up in the common room to wait for our taxi, and were told we quite abruptly we needed to move by the owner as he needed to go to sleep on the sofa, so as a result has to sit in the dark in the kitchen area.

    Stayed in 10 bed dorm. Hostel is more like a big shared home/apartment. You enter through a discreet door which leads to a courtyard and Oleander is on the right. Check in occurs in the kitchen and the rooms are small but have decently sized bunk beds. Lockers in kitchen area are very big & require a lock. House-like kitchen with 2 small dining tables and the bedrooms are attached to the kitchen area along with 2 toilet cubicles. Staff accommodating to late check-ins and fairy central location.

    The staff was okay… I had asked if I could leave my luggage at the hostel beforehand and they said no. The common area was dirty.

    Staff were nice. Place wasn't very clean. You have 5min shower limit because there is only 1 shower for 30+ people. In my opinion it was overpriced.

    This was the worst hostel I've ever stayed in. There is 1 bathroom for at least 30 people with 1 shower! It's very dirty in the whole hostel. I didnt once dare to cook in there. My bed had slats missing so it was incredibly uncomfortable. There is no air con or even a fan so you have to have the window open all the time onto a main road so it's very noisy. The communal area is supposed to stop at 11 but both nights that didnt happen and it's right next to the rooms so noise from both sides.
