  • This hostel is very well organized, and responds to pretty much every need that a traveler can have. I was dissapointed that it now caters to groups of school age kids, not even teenagers yet, who travel in large numbers, at least 20, and overwhelm the whole atmosphere of the hostel with their kids energy, running around, making their noises, watching cartoons on t.v. It felt like a summer kid camp, and I certainly would not use this hostel again, if I knew that one of those groups attended.

  • The room is pretty small, but you do get a cabinet for your belongings. The location is excellent, it's well-connected to major spots like downtown and the airport, and you get all the Chinese food you want!

  • I've been surprised, having booked two rooms of 6 (full, for 12 people) receiving one for 2, 2 for 3 and one for 4, but we were still only people of my group in the rooms ... we were split, but had more space... not a problem (very surprised ;-) )

  • I'm kinda used to cheap hostel and this one is definitely not cheap for what it is. The beds are awful, I pay usually 18 dollars for a bed like that and not 30 dollars a night... The staff is very friendly, the kitchen is a nice place to stay. The weird thing is that we can't drink alcohol in the hotel, common areas and even our own room... A little bit weird for a hostel.

  • It was honestly the worst stay at a hostel I have ever had. I couldn't sleep thru a single night due to the constant door slamming. The handle on the door to my room caught, so my bunkmates were either constantly jiggling it or knocking for someone to let them in. The hostel could improve on the soundproofing, too.
