Liked: Good location in red light district, short walk from the train station and to major attractions, clean room

Disliked: Highly not recommended if you will arrive early (earlier than 9am) because their "24 hours reception" actually means a guy at the bar who couldn't care less about you. I totally understand that rooms are usually ready in the afternoon, so in most hostels they will let you leave your bags, fresh up / rest in common area when arrive early. But what I got from the bar guy when I arrived at 7am was "I open the door to let the air in" (not to have me walk in) and that I have to come back at 9am to leave my bags so I ended up walking around town with all my luggage. Although I understand the concept of working hours, kicking someone out when you have a vast empty space...and it said a lot about how helpful this place gonna be!

The property's response is

Dear guest:

We hava a strict system for access rooms, it's for your security.
Do you like a poor access system? Like everyone from the street can goes to your room? Don't think so.
Our staff are always friendly if you are respect the rules of the hotel.

Liked: Clean place. But slightly old. No elevator and steps were quite steep. Hostel wa slocated directly above a bar. Wifi was really weak in the common area and disconnected a number of times.

Disliked: Only stay if you are curious about the red light district. The hostel was relatively safe but it was located at the edge of the rowdy area and weed smoke can be smell frequently.
