6/10 Good

An okay-ish hostel. Some of the dorm rooms don’t have a window to open so it can feel stuffy and not comfortable. Shower rooms are laid out so that whenever someone has a shower, the whole bathroom gets wet including the whole toilet. A bit scruffy. Comfy beds. Could do with privacy curtains. Wi-Fi not great in the room I was staying in.

Home away from home
Perfect for a solo trip with single room. The bathrooms are cleaned many times a day and the water is always hot. However, the hand dryers should be automatically switched off after 10pm as it is very loud and can wake you up during the night. Great location and very close to the essentials. The single room accommodation was perfect (just what you need nothing fancy). The staff were all very friendly, approachable and helpful. Definitely a home away from home!!

2/10 Poor

I wanted a 10 am check-in with full day payment, and still they just threw in the policy card. They cannot allow check-in before 2 pm. Even though, I was ready to make a payment for a 10 am check-in. Had to book another hotel, as my situation was quite extraordinary. What a terrible ordeal, where is the never say no to your guests, and this guest was ready to pay even for a full yes. Nopp, silly policy enforcement cost them a customer never to book with them again.
