Liked: The exterior

Disliked: The staff is not very friendly but as long as they do the job right, I don't complain, since this is not high end hotel. The toilets and showers are very dirty, it seems that the manager of the hotel deliberately put the effort on the appearance of the hotel (the bar, the garden, the room), but not the things that can't be seen after the customers have checked in. This is very short sighted, I will not come back again however cheap the price is

Liked: The toilet and the bathrooms are clean. Bedroom and the bedding are clean too. It is located away from the hustle and bustle of the city so quite peaceful at night, making you easy to sleep after a long and tired day. Breakfast is provided and it is not bad. Towel and wifi also provided too.

Disliked: I asked for boiled water for my cup noodles and the staff was reluctant to give me. The room was very stuffy.

Liked: Quite clean, airy feel. Quiet at night, comforters were good. Good number of clean bathrooms and showers. Overall a nice setup, a little removed from hustle and bustle of more central locations.

Disliked: Extremely unhelpful and downright rude customer service. Claim to have free wifi, however frequent issues with accessing this. The unpleasantness of staff made this a sticking point on being able to reccommend this hostel. Breakfast is adequate, but very basic. Cereal, whitetoast, coffee. No kitchen facilities or fridge for quests.
