    This place is a good value considering how much more you would pay for a standard hotel, but it definitely lacks a welcoming youth hostel atmosphere. The lobby is kind of dark, the bathrooms have no hooks to hang your towel or clothes on, the microwave was out of order, the back patio is shabby, there are no coffee mugs or real plates, and the free breakfast is somewhat of a joke. My private room was simple and adequate, but a bedside table and a lamp would be a nice addition.

    The front desk man was very good. Professional. But the next day a polynesian man was irritated from me asking how to work the lock. He stated after he showed me 'its not even hard. " Which of course made me feel stupid. I'm glad I remembered that the last time I stayed at RK Hostel. I almost booked with them again. I remembered their establishment in time and didn't. I also, recall that last time I got bitten up with fleas.

    Poor lighting, nobody at reception when I arrived. Dead cockroaches in rooms along with bed bugs, mold and dust in every area I saw. Refunded the same day I moved on. The one staff member I did find was very helpful and apologetic. He deserves to work at a better hostel with management that gives a damn.

    Had a bit of a bed bug issue. Would wake up and find them next to me when sleeping on lower bunks. Also had a weird lady in my room, it was oddly just me and her for 4 days. She would sleep all day and would never go anywhere. Closed all the curtains in the room the the day after I got there, so it was always dark in my room, no matter what time. Possibly homeless, possibly coming down from something. It made me super uncomfortable. Will probably just try to get a private room next time.

    The property smelled really bad, looked abandoned and nobody was at the front desk in the middle of the day when we arrived. We could just walk inside freely into the room on the ground floor so I couldn't imagine leaving my stuff or sleeping there. There weren't even brochures of touristy stuff to do around like in any hostel I've ever been to. Luckily since nobody was there to check us in, we left and found an incredibly nicer hostel for the same price.

    The staff person was sleeping in back when I tried to check in at 3:00 and I waited till 3:30. Then he claimed I never gave him my drivers license. I demanded to search his office, turned up nothing, but then he miraculously found it when my friend came down. My friend also had a problem when wanting to extend his stay. Staff asked him to pay for it in cash, other 4 days on credit, then only wrote 4 days on receipt which my friend didn't catch till later. SCAMS!!! BEWARE!!!!

    Hi, this is Eun Sung Choi. I made a reservation 16 to 17 for just one night. It said check in time is 2pm. It turned out that you guys closed the door til 6pm however. How could it be possible? I already paid my deposit which was $9. I think I need to get back my deposit. You have not notified to me the exact check in time so I paid the Uber fee and got a new hostel which were ripped off. Get back to me when you check this. Thanks,

    Entering RK hostel was not a comforting experience. All of the lights were off at 4pm. No employee was in the building to check us in but we were greeted by a guest who seemed like he was on c***k (not kidding, definitely a habit). He told us no one was there to check us in + pointed to the door stating blocks of check in hours. He showed us the code to get the key from outside to let ourselves in the hostel at night...and the story continues. We left and did not return. Not safe.
