Liked: The dorm was spacious and had comfortable beds, the kitchen was well equipped with cooking utensils. There is some nice cafes and coffee shops near the hostel and the bars and clubs of K Road are near by. The manager was friendly and he helped me sort out my bus pass.

Liked: Like only the location.

Disliked: Even the paid wifi was not working appropriately and basic facilities were unavailable and were disappointing such as there was no hand soap available in the bathroom which is very basic facility.
