    The hostel is very conveniently located, close to the train station (4 min. walk) and close to a supermarket. I enjoyed the fact that you can hangout at the common area until late, besides people were really friendly.

    The location is good, convenient for travel.

    Wrong Manager If you are of color or not 100% sure that you will not anything different from their way, be prepared to function well under continuously aggressive insult. On the third evening when I was there, I was rinsing the dishes I used. Suddenly, a guy with shaggy hair came in and told me to use a sponge. I told him peacefully that I had already done that. Then he told me not to touch the dish when washing it. I told him that I need to touch the plate when rinsing it. The manager (perhaps named Rob) came in at this moment and ordered me to do the dishes in the way I was told. He also asked me when I would check out in a coercive tone. I told him how many nights I had booked and the date for checking out. No problem. The shaggy guy then showed me how to do the dishes: he washed a cutting board with the detergent and sponge, put it down, and used a tea towel to dry it directly. He didn’t touch the dish when he used the cloth (It might be different if he washed a big plate). Now it was clear that they do not rinse after using dish detergent; that is why they thought I had not used the sponge with dish liquid before they saw me. I told them to check the video to see if I had used a sponge and detergent. The manager seemed annoyed. He told me he was the owner of the hostel, and I must wash the dish in the way they told me. In the following days, I rinsed all the dishes before I used them because some of the staff and customers, including myself, were coughing, and detergent could be a factor that contributed to the cough. I had to ignore the hatred expressed in the eyes of the manager and the shaggy guy when I did this. This is only one episode among many. Do not imagine because they are out of your imagination.

    The location is walkable to all must-visit landmarks. The bathroom is quite clean as a shared-space. Besides, I like the breakfast a lot, simple but fulfill.

    It would be better if rooms for men and women were separated.

    Great value for money, basic facilities but everything you need, friendly staff

    Only 3 showers and toilet cubicles to accommodate lots of guests, flat pillow
