Overall this is a good hostel, clean, modern, excellent facilities and a high standard of rooms however the location is less desirable. Its is in a tower block and over 9k away from the train station. Despite the hostel being close to the bus station, its still a 5 minute bus journey away and to get to the bus stop opposite the hostel you have to play 'chicken' crossing the dual carriageway with all your luggage. This is the closest hostel to the bus station (I think).
The hostel isn't really near the city or main district, Wallmart is a good 20-25 minute walk away. There's a small convenience shop in the tower block which compensates for this.
The location was frustrating but its of a high quality - perfect to stop and take a break for the China to Vietnam (and vice versa) crossing.
