Liked: Really easy to meet other backpackers, great atmosphere and staff are extremely helpful and knowlegable. Would definitely stay here again!

Disliked: It's possible for luggage to be left during the day if you have a late flight/train but would have preferred bags to be locked away rather than left within the common room. However staff are always present to keep an eye on your belongings.

Liked: The staff was incredibly warm and welcoming. They had weekly activities at night, including big family style dinners and dumpling making. The hostel is warm and quiet, and while not meant for rambunctious activity, I met some great people there to spend time with in the city.

Disliked: Main lobby closes at midnight, but not a problem unless you really need to use their computers.

Liked: It is a great place to stay, small dorms though but nice staff (fully English speakers). Great comfy beds, not like hard wood. Meals are a bit expensive but very convenient, and tour booking and transport booking is a plus. Nice outdoor area to chill out.

Disliked: a bit pricy for the food and drinks. Dust under beds, doors do not locked except the main one, however you've got a private lockers in the room.
