The staff was very friendly and the restaurant downstairs was a convenient and delicious place to eat. The bathrooms could have been cleaner but overall it is a pretty decent hostel and a convenient place to stay.

Poor 2.0
Bad place, no private bath, will never return.
I thik this is more's fault. we never knew this is a bedroom without bath! did not say that. we paid over $100 for a double bed room, there is nothing in that room except two beds. No nigh-stand even, no TV, nothing. Unbelievable. The bath for Male is on a different floor! it was the worst experience ever... this is a very typical low-cost thing for young travelers, but with this expense, over $100, I enver thought we will get a room like this. have to say this is a terrible experience with!!!
