Liked: Value for money, a very modern hostel with new facilities catered for every traveller. The common areas are great for social interaction and a very big kitchen if you wish to cook your meals. The breakfast is great with a large variety of breads, cereals fruits and yogurt. The location is also great as its a close walk to Chinatown and downtown

Liked: Great breakfast, good common areas, good events and clean well fitted out dorm rooms. Light and wall plugs by each bedhead is a nice touch.

Disliked: Can't think of anything apart from one rude staff member. Certainly one of the best hostels I've stayed in.

Liked: This hostel was very clean, and breakfast was pretty good.

Disliked: On the website page, it says they provide shampoo and soap. Well, they did, but it wasn't a good quality. It was almost like water - not a soap, very cheap. You should bring your own to use.

Your comments are appreciated... and I'm noting your concerns regarding the soap/shampoo... we can always do better.

Cheers!
