  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We were late when we came to the hostel therefore there was no one in the front desk to help us. We were panic as not to much information but finally we figured out how to get in out room. The room was considered spacious and clean with clean shared shower room. For the price we paid in this expensive country we had no complaint. Free parking was also provided.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Loved the location. Loved the nice comfy beds & warm clean comforters. Unfortunate that many guests didn't clean up after cooking in the shared areas but not a surprise. Staff had to do more work than seemed fair but were very helpful and pleasant. Think it'd be great to have more staff so they have some time off!

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The room was clean, bed comfortable, but no hot water in my room sink, no towel rack, one hanger, no where to put your toothpaste and toothbrush. The reception was strange: the woman at the desk seemed disinterested, annoyed by my arrival, didn’t give me much an overview of how things “worked” (I had to ask the questions and got vague answers), and told me she was just doing her friend a favour by working for her at the desk (but she was there daily, so illegally working, perhaps?). I asked her if there were female washroom/shower facilities and she said no. I used a male/female toilet the first night and next morning (poor privacy, urine all over the floor) then when I wandered the halls I noticed a private women’s washroom! Nice, but toilet paper ran out by morning! The shower room was male/female, and situated in a hallway - people passed through to their rooms constantly. Many male foreign workers were there, wandering through the shower area, which made me feel uncomfortable and even vulnerable. The shower drain was always plugged with hair, so you stood in 8cm of water. No shelf for your shampoo bottles, some stalls had no where to hang your clothes. This is where the blow dryers are, so no privacy for that, either. She told me there was an outdoor kitchen, fine for summer, but it must be awful in the winter. She did not tell me there was an indoor communal food prep (no stove) and dish-washing area. No fridge or microwave that I could see, but maybe? No lounge or books
