Liked: I enjoyed my stay @ the hostel

Disliked: I didn't like that my edamame (labled on the bottom) was moved from where i had it stored to a bottom cabinet hidden behind some other food. Even worse, stored on top of the container of edamame was a very expensive container of crysrysanthemum tea that completely went missing.

Liked: Very communal atmosphere and a great place to meet fellow travellers. Although it doesn't actually offer airport pick-up, if you want transfers you have to arrange them separately. The busses drop you off at the doorstep.

Disliked: Camille left no negative feedback.
