  • Decent hostel, has everything you could need. A little far from subway, though, and staff is only present for a few hours a day (I only saw an employee once when I paid - during a 5 night stay!)

  • A small hostel with great atmosphere. It is clean and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included, free wi-fi and free internet. A 15 minutes walk from China Town but there are buses to catch just outside the hostel. I can really recommend to stay here!

  • I had a nice two night stay at this hostel run by a irishman. It's clean and quiet and has laundry facilities. Bread is included. Not much hot water for showers though.

  • IT does not seem much at first, but the atmosphere is like home. Good place for they who just need a place to sleep. No facilities close by, so you need to take taxi to everything. (taxi is cheep)
