Stayed 3 nights in 8 female bed dorm with a friend and it was lovely.
the room was spacious with huge locker and fluffy bed, not to mention its very clean.
since we're staying in female dorm, we're eligible to use female bathroom and toilet and i can say the bathroom was spotless...super clean for hostel standart. the shower is better than some 3 star hotels i went into. The breakfast was decent too, they served you various cereal, milk, toast & jam, good enough to start your day.
The best thing is the staff. they're super friendly.. always greet you with smile, recomend local food or attraction and willing help you 24/7. two thumbs up for the staff!
For light sleeper like me, the room was quite noisy because i can hear everything outside the building, and in my first night there was like street music from 12-2am.
plus, no solid door in every room only curtain provided. it makes noise from outside getting louder.
I think if they can provide solid door in everyroom, things would be greater. :)
I will definitly recommend it to my friends :)
