Liked: This place was easy to find.

Disliked: It wasn't really a place to meet people. It was very dark and no real common areas, although it did have a kitchen and eating area. The kitchen consists of a sink, some burners and a fridge. No oven, no microwave, no toaster or kettle. It would be a good place if you just want to clean and sleep and leave again.

Liked: staffs speak great english and helped us a lot!! though foods are not that good. can be reached from the city central by 10-15mins walking, and there is a bus stop nearby. i think it's an ideal accommodation for budget savers, single travellers, people who doesnt care about the atmosphere in where you live, not suitable for couples. thanks very much for the hosting!!

Disliked: breakfast, dinner, and the coffee machine wont give changes

Liked: The hostel was basic but fine as base for snowboarding or skiing.

Disliked: The lights in the equipment kept turning off every 30 seconds or so. Good for the environment but not so good for putting on or taking off equipment.
