The hostel is a bit hard to find since it was along the residence areas. It was also a very long walk from BST On-nut Station. But thanks to the kind people whom we asked, we were able to reach it.
We arrived at the hostel around 8AM hoping we could leave our stuffs and officially start our tour. But there was no one there when we arrived. We had to wait outside for about 30 minutes before we got the idea of calling the number in the note through a payphone located at the corner of the block. We had to wait for about 15 minutes before someone came and opened the door for us. Though we were disappointed, we did not let this ruin our vacation. It's a good thing the rooms are clean. Though we had problems with the cleanliness of the toilets.
Since we leave the hostel very early and arrive late, it was an advantage that they provide access cards to the main door. Though we can enter the hostel without a receptionist, it would have been better if there was someone there who we can ask for tips and directions on how to get from one place to another. Hope they can improve on this.
They provided us blankets which we did not use in our first night because we thought those were towels. It turned out those were blankets and the note they had in our room was to warn guests not to use the blankets as towels. ^_^
We only got the chance to ride their "shuttle" on our first day there since the receptionist was there. After that, we did not see the "shuttle" anymore.
We also appreciate the fact that the receptionist waited for us to pick up our stuff on our last day since we left our stuff at the reception area and came back around 8Pm to pick them up (although she said that she was already working overtime).
