My room had minor flaws: minibar wasnt closed properly so there was water all over the closet, shower door didnt get to "locked" position etc. My friends werent so lucky. They had to change room two times because of ac not working properly....

They even allowed me to keep my bags in the safe room until I returned from my 2 day trips to both locations. The staff was pretty friendly and patient with me. They even helped me...

Stayed in the dorm. Six beded. Amazing view of the city from the 9th floor. Dorm was nicely done. The remote of AC was kept in the lobby only due to strange reasons.

Firstly, this is not actually a true backpackers hostel - it's a hotel which has SOME dorm rooms. The one I stayed in was a 6 bed mixed dorm with AC and an en suite bathroom. The beds are really comfortable and you get your own locker (no padlock provided) and the best part is the FREE buffet breakfast, which...

I've stayed here for two months in the dorm room, and it was great! The staff is so friendly, even the people of cleanliness, always smiling. The breakfast is the best that I had in my trip so far. The beds are good, not too hard as usual in Asia. Very clean and in a excellent location.
