    Clean, tidy, staff were great, bed was comfortable, $8 breakfast was superb. Bit of road noise in the bedroom, but I slept like a log. Overall, great value for money and would recommend it.

    It was clean, staff was friendly. Kitchen is locked at 10pm, so that also cuts you off from having a cup of tea. There were other guests up and making noise socializing still at 3:00 AM, so that isn't the fault of the hostel, but it was annoying. They do provide ear plugs at the front desk and I got some for my second night.

    I booked my own room as I lad just landed off a 14hr flight. I really liked that this hotel was nice and quiet, not a party hostel, even though it was really busy, I got a great sleep both nights. I recommend it!!

    Generally a great place, good location, safe and very clean, elevator, good showers and comfortable beds and mini fridge in rooms with friendly staff. My biggest issue was lockers with broken locks.... 4 of the 6 in our dorm were not lockable. Dorm rooms and kitchens a bit small.

    Overall good hostel. 24hr front desk - perfect for late check in. We had snorer in our room and asked to switch. no issues and liked our room better. Only female/male toilet on certain floors but very clean. Only one small kitchen for all the floors but clean and lots of appliances.

    I booked a private room and stayed 2 nights, the price was good for a priv and was a comfortable nights sleep. The kitchen is tiny and found no where to eat my food other than the corridor or all the way in reception. BUT the shower pressure in the female toilets were amazing. Best shower I have had in a year and a half of travelling. A bit far from the city but not awful to walk 20 mins. Near K road.

    You get what you pay for at a YMCA but in this instance it's a little over priced for the basics. Harry Potter's cupboard under the stairs is actually bigger than the kitchens here. Generally clean and staff are ok

    Weird atmosphere, the kitchen is very small and there is only one small dining area on the 2nd floor which is down the hall from the kitchen. The room was very clean but you can hear everything from the rooms around you and in the hall - booked a single private room so i could get a restful sleep. The front desk person also had the music playing quite loudly in the foyer below my room at 645am and when i asked then to turn it down they seemed annoyed and unfriendly about it.
