Liked: Clean and cozy. The common area is nice. Very basic facilities, but considering the very low price, well worth it.

Disliked: I think this is a very new operation. The reception is based in another building and the people at the desk could learn to be more helpful. Also, there were no bedsheets provided. Overall still not bad for the price.

Liked: Very well located

Disliked: Impossible to find. Just a tiny door in a crowded street. Walked past it a few times. Beds uncomfortable. Very hot inside because of no aircon. Doesn't look like as on the Internet. Stuff not very friendly. Sofa in the lobby is just disgusting.

Liked: It was close to the city centre and sightseeing places.

Disliked: We did not exactly got the beds in the dorms we applied for online, our 6 person group was seperated into 3 girls and 3 guys. Not really a problem, but the second night another guy was sleeping in our girls room which was kind of weird. Really hot room, no aircon and only 1 really small fan. Just 1 shower/toilet and 1 extra toilet for about 15 beds, and it seemed that even some family was using it. Not clean at all
