Fabulous 8.8 From 35 reviews

Fair 4.0
Surprise, it’s a hostel, not a hotel.
We booked this based on the price and location. On this front Watage delivered. But what doesn’t say is “hostel.” We ended up eating the cost as a refund was not an option and booking a hotel with a private bathroom.

Very good 8.0
Stayed in a single room -- space so tight that I had to store my mid-size luggage at the reception area. Room and facilities were tidy. Common kitchen has everything you need. 5 Stars to the staff.

Best hostel I’ve ever stayed in
I have been traveling for 4 months in six different countries and this is the best hostel I have ever stayed in.
Emily, us2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
It opens in Oct 2018 and run by Japanese. Eeverything is new and the quality is good. The bed is comfortable and I can have a sound sleep. The location is excellent and it is convenient to every where. Although the hostel is small, there is kitchen and you can gather with friends at the TV room and the terrace. The value is high with low price.

It is just open in Oct 2018 an run by Japanese. Everything is new and clean. The bed is comfortable. I also like the rest area with a terrace where I can watch TV freely. Would come again as the price is low with good services.
