    1. Good location, nearby train station and tram station. 2. Comfortable big bed in the room. 3. Staffs are friendly. 4. Kitchen & fridge is provided for people to cook. 5. The rooms have key fob entry and lockers.

    1. There are alot of students made noise at night and made the toilet dirty. 2. Plug is not near the bed. 3. Wifi was quite slow. 4. Check in time is a bit late, inconvenience as nobody in hostel if arrived before 4pm. 5. Breakfast is pretty expensive.

    nice stuff

    When I arrived there wasn't place for me althrought I had a reservation. I had to sleep on a couch. at 4 AM i recived a diffrent bed !! that night was a mess. Next day hotel stuff suggested a free night " in the future" - I didnt recived money back. I understand that "someone else" took my place but it is not right.

    Nothing. Everything was great.
