First of all this hostel is in a brilliant place, within 1 minutes walk of Clarke Quay and also a whole street of restaurants across the road. The guys who run the cafe next door are real friendly and helpful as well. Now the hostel. it is quite small and very new so you will not get any assistance or group entertainment like you do in many hostels. The hostel is totally white and I mean white all over. it has no windows so is quite soulless. However the bed is spacious and really comfortable with a curtain to give you privacy. I was in a mixed dorm although I asked for a female dorm and this means that the showers and bathroom are mixed as well. They are clean and quite large but it is a challenge to get dressed without displaying your wares to others as there are no chairs to sit on, no shelves to put your clothes on. The beds are double high in what is really a corridor so there is little room beside the bed either. Again no chairs in the rooms. The lockers are quite challenging as they are a horizontal cupboard below the bottom bunk which means distorting yourself to both lock them and get the bag that has been pushed to the back. There is a handy lockable smaller locker by the bed, next to a handy shelf inside your pod where you can put your computer, phone, tablet etc. There is also your own electric socket. The price is really great for such a great position and it includes a basic breakfast and wi fi.
In summary, great price if you can forgo both colour and atmosphere and the hostel experience.
