Young people staying up til wee hours drinking and yakking which doesn't make them bad but you can hear everything thing from rooms. They don't cleanup after themselves. You have to walk thru the common rooms to reach the "shared bathrooms". The hygiene there and in the kitchen leaves a lot to be desired. That being said, the location is... More

We stayed at K Road 3 times and enjoyed every one. The free Wi-Fi is very stable, there's computers to use for free, the dorms are not too big (only 4 bed dorms) and breakfast is included. That's a service we hadn't had in other hostels where we paid more. The first time we stayed there, there was a little... More

The place stank. This is a place frequented by disgusting teenage hostlers and has even some long term "residents". Guests dont even clean the dishes and the premises are a mess. One night I heard a bunch talking about drugs and stuff! And not to forget the noises in the wee hours!

The staff is quite okay and the rooms are more or less clean. But the worst part is the kitchen, everything is dirty and although they do clean it this does not really change anything. We tried to cook a few times, but it is just disgusting. The bathroomes on the other hand is quite okay and we really liked... More

Great location with lots of potential. WiFi included, helpful staff. However, poorly maintained - repairs needed in every bathroom and toilet and kitchen. Walls and ceilings were the dirtiest I've seen world-wide and haven't been cleaned IMHO for at least a year. Carry out basic repairs and cleaning and I'd consider staying again.

Very clean and comfortable, it got free wifi, computers, breakfast, guide books. I stayed four days, and lived in mix room, and I met some friends here. Just walk 15-20minutes to the city, the bus station is close to here, It's a good choice for the backpackers.☀️☀️☀️

This is a very good hostel. Rooms are clean and the common areas are cleaned and kept to a high standard. Everyone at the hostel seems really friendly and the outside deck of the upper level is good to socialise and meet new friends. The City link bus across the road is a big bonus to as that leads you... More

We were upgraded to a private room, which was very clean and the beds comfortable. Unfortunately, the hostel is right above a street where there's plenty of bars which make it rather difficult to sleep. They have free wifi, which was the best during my three months of backpacking in Australia and New Zealand, you're even able to have a... More
