Liked: It is really a nice place to stay. It is cheap and the facilities are so good. Also it has cool air in the rooms and in June it is necessary if you want to sleep.

Disliked: there is no wifi in the rooms, it is just in the living room

Liked: Location first of all, since it's only less than 10 minutes from the metro. The reception staff is very helpful. And the room was fantastic (double room with private WC), very big, with storage and high end WC.

Disliked: The common area was the same as the restaurant. It was not possible to take own food to the tables, but the ligthing at 7pm was like disco bar! And also the music, rap like, very loud, not at all inviting to have dinner or a quick meal. Also the staff at the bar was not helpful at all... So the restaurant/common area did not serve its purpose and everyone preferred to stay at the lobby. Also, although there were signs of non smoking at the restaurant, even the staff smoked there...

Liked: Very conveniently located, next to the metro. Rooms were nice and very clean.

Disliked: I'm pretty sure I paid a deposit for my room key, but I couldn't remember by the time I checked out and it wasn't on my receipt so I couldn't prove it. It's not a negative comment just make sure you check your receipt to see if the key card deposit is on it.

Liked: Stayed in a dorm room. Nice big in-room lockers large enough to fit a carry on suitcase. Common areas very conducive to meeting people. Even though the hostel claims it's location is not that good, it's very close to the metro station so no issues getting around. Breakfast buffet was very good particularly the dumplings.

Disliked: Mattress was truly awful. It was a 1 inch thick piece of foam which was badly worn, you could tell because the sides were much higher than the middle. It gave me back ache for the whole time I stayed, and was difficult to sleep. I discovered at the end only top bunks had this terrible mattress, so if I was to recommend this hostel I'd say make sure it's a bottom bunk! One particular staff member had a poor attitude and acted like everything was a hassle and you should never disturb him. All the rest were great. No wifi in rooms and could be a bit spotty.
