It was my first time living in the hostel.
I arrived at the hostel around 5 pm, and the lady at the counter showed me the room and the facilities around. My room was on the 2nd floor and it was mixed bed room. The room so small, and very smelly like no ventilation air from outside. And that time only 1 male sleeping on the bed corner. I couldn't imagine what it's like if the room is fully occupied as the room was sooooo small.
When I took a shower on the ladies bath room on the 2nd floor, the lamp was only at the outside of the bathroom so when I locked up the bathroom I was hardly see my things as it was quite dark.
After walking around and back to the hostel, I informed the boy at the counter that my room is smelly and asked whether I can change the room, if I have to add more money it's won't be a problem.
The boy was so helpful, he changed my room to the other mixed bed room on the 3rd floor. The smell of the room much much much better. I have seen there is a window inside this room, that's why it was not too smelly.
When I want about to sleep, I went to the ladies bathroom on the 3rd floor and seen so many crocroaches on the floor. I guess the floor was dried and no one use it for a long time, and I had no idea where's these croacroches came from.
I slept quite good at that night, the AC run well.
In the morning when I was taking a shower, the crocroaches was all gone. I don't know why.
The breakfast was very simple, only toast, cereal, jams, coffee and tea.
My conclusion is...you'll get what you paid.
And my suggestion for this hostel is.....every morning try to open all the windows in the room for better ventilation air.
The location is super good, near to chinatown mrt and easy to find local food.
