Thank God we only checked in for a night. We were given an all female 4 bedroom dorm and the room is really squeezy despite the staff's assurance that it is big and spacious and we will like it. (We actually booked for an all female 3 bedroom. Whatever) Hell, we did not. There is only room for you to put your luggages and to climb up and down the bunks. Our room was a 15s walk from the toilet so it was kinda annoying. The female bathroom is dimly lighted and the lighting works on sensors. So if you have been staying in the bathroom for too long, the lights would just automatically turn off. Bathroom is dirty and smells...
Breakfast is just toast and coffee and tea. Staffs are friendly though. We chose this hostel because of its generally positive review but I guess it's funk only because of the parties they have and the paintings on their walls and doors... Not suitable if you're finding for a place to rest and have a peaceful night.
