Liked: Office is in a Discovery Cafe but rooms are in other building few seconds walk from. Entrance to the other building doesn't look good but because they are refurbishing room downstairs. They have many rooms and communal area upstairs. I enjoyed stay there and the price for dorm room. Thank you also for a help to get to Bus station late evening.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: Very clean, toilet paper and soap were being provided free of extra charge. The beds are of good wooden quality. Good location. Nice common area.

Disliked: Lockers were provided but seemed easy to break into, so I didn't use them at all. The room I stayed in had no real windows, so not a lot of daylight or fresh air.

Liked: great location near chinatown, lots of food options. great bar by the riverside.

Disliked: wish there were more toilets. 2 toilets shared amongst 50 people was rather annoying.
