Friendly staff, good atmosphere, clean rooms and decent bathrooms of the style where you have a number of self contained bathrooms shared amongst the floor plus a few extra toilets and basins.

The atmosphere was good, free activities planned by the staff and a huge lounge room where everybody can play futsal/billiards with a small dining area.

Overall very pleasant experience. The staffs were friendly and there are a variety of activities available. Met some nice people from other parts of the world. Would recommend this place if you like to meet fun people and experience the city from a different perspective (join the walking tour/ cycling tour etc.).

Positive: In fairness it was the cleanest hostel I've ever been to. Check-in and check-out were well-organised. Reception was very helpful and friendly. There is huge safe in the room for your personal items. Negative: There is only one shower facility (for single person) for the whole floor. You might wait if it is busy. Recommendation: Bring big size lock...

Stayed for 8 nights during an academic exchange. Conveniently located. Decent breakfast. Located in the heart of the city. Supermarket across the street. Small common areas. Rooms not very well ventilated but can be lived with.
