Privacy, breakfast, friendly atmosphere, lounge,location.
Hostel is near the bus station and city center. I lived in a mixed room, but I had my own privacy in my bed. Bed is clean and staffs are really nice.
You need to pay for the storage of luggages, and I think the ventilation system is not good in my room.
The bar-restaurant didn't serve a beer unless you had dinner. I understand it has to do with paperwork but I think you should communicate this better online
Staff were pleasant. Reception area had couches
No kitchen. The only socializing area was on the rooftop and it was basically a couple of picnic tables. The hallways were very drab, painted in dark colors, and seemed more like a jail or old type institution of some sort. The sleeping "pods" are tomb-like, and I found myself unable to stretch out and roll over without hitting the wall. Also, no where to organize anything. Usually it's possible to lay things out on the bed, but not possible with "pod" sleeping.
The airport link stop is a minutes walk away. I arrived after midnight. The staff were so welcoming and helpful. The other guests in my 4 bed room were really quiet and considerate. I didn't hear anything from other rooms. The breakfast was fantastic and healthy.
