I stayed at The Island Hotel dorm over a long weekend. Firstly, the staff are really friendly, especially at the reception. It's a great place to meet people from all over. Very comfortable bed, great AC. Dorm is spacious and cozy at the same time. Depending on the people staying there, it could be a party dorm. I did get woken up at 3 in the morning from the party-going folks. On the other hand, it is so chilled-out in the morning since nobody is awake. Pool is relatively small.
Housekeeping could be slightly better, especially in the bathrooms & toilets (they look clean but have funky smell at certain times). Location is hidden in an alley but easily accessible.
The Island serves great pizza.
If you're looking to meet new people from all over the globe and party all night all week, The Island is the place. If you just wanna get a good night's sleep, get the room not the dorm. I didn't like my first night staying there but after getting to know people in the dorm, I ended up liking the place.
Some things could be better. But hey, it could be worse in other hostel.
Overall, I had a good experience.
