Liked: The hostel is nicely designed and the first employe was very welcoming. The promotional price was a good value.

Disliked: Other staff was less helpful and the cleaning lady, that slept in our dorm came home late and made noise after quiet hour - not a disaster but also not very considerate.

Backpacking / gap year

Liked: The location in Chinatown was nice. The bed was comfortable.

Disliked: It was very noisy until quite late because of the location to Chinatown and where the main food stalls are. Bathroom was not clean and there was always a line to share the showers or toilets (only 2). $20 deposit for the key seemed a bit ridiculous. But mostly, the fellow travelers in this hostel were awful. There was no sense of camaraderie and hardly anyone spoke English. Air conditioner and fan stopped working at 11pm and never came back on in the middle of the night. One of my worst hostel experiences on my RTW trip. Don't stay here.

Liked: great location, in the middle of Chinatown's food street

Disliked: 1. staff (not all - but the one girl with short hair) was really unfriendly -- 2. (and more important than nr. 1) - Security: People were inside our room during we were out (they said the needed to repair the Aircon but it worked perfect before we left... ??) - the staff packed all our stuff in trash bags so that they could not steal anything... well everything was sorted before (like dirty and clean clothes) and then everything together in trash bags while the repair guys are alone in the room WTF?
