Trung Tran

25 March 2010 Trung would recommend this property

Liked: Great place to meet people and having fun. Great facilities, we have bar, pool, soccer table and great free breakfast too... But there is one thing I dont like that is the room is too cold. I stayed in the 14 beds dorm and then realised that there is only one heater in the room and it doesnt provide enough heat for the whole room. So there is only one option is sleep if you are in the room. Just wondering how people survive if this is winter? May not come back again.

Liked: Brilliant little place with good beds, was in 32person room, its not as bad as it sounds as its like 2 rooms and mostly double bunk beds so it feels very spacious. They take your towels if u leave em on the racks tho so be carefull. But they gave us 2 free towels to make up for it. Im actually back at the hostel now writing this!

Liked: the staff, the location, the possibilities to meet other people, the green bar at the hostel were great, number one!!! Just the rooms with 32 people inside were a shock, everyone goes to bed and wakes up at diferent time, you are not alone even for a minute. If you´re used to comfort and luxury, you´ll die there...otherwise it is great! :))

19 September 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This is definitely party hostel! the rooms are very crowded but you will meet a lot of people, and there is a smoking room in the bar too. it was a fun time but a little creepy, the bathrooms are gross and the showers arent great either, but its good for the price and really you are only in the shower or toilet for a total of 25 min a day, the rest of the time you are partying, meeting people, or out on the street shopping. the hostel is right next to the train station and the shopping street. The breakfast is really good too! I had a great time!
