    The desk staff seemed to know what they were doing and the rooms are very clean :) could be more toilet facilities but other than that it's all good for the price, location is also decent. Shame about the alcohol situation but the bar downstairs...More

    Reception staff was nice, but the hostel it's not that good. My 6 bed room was small and extremely hot during the night, having some fans around isn't enough. The bed was comfortable. It was quiet, and overall atmosphere was quite boring. Wifi was crap.

    The toilets are shared for all. Only 1 male and 1 female toilets available. So it takes sometimes to get to shower or toilet. Others than that, it's okay for budget accommodation. Suggest everyone to get up 1-2 hours earlier than your planned schedule.
