Excellent price, but overall condition needs work
Excellent price for an inner-city hostel and extremely helpful staff member. Needs renovation to bring out character of old building in historic area. Free breakfast was not acceptable as a deposit was needed for bowls, cups etc, downstairs.

Please don't waste your money in here.
The stuff is really impolite and rude. Live in here like disaster. The room is smelly. I can't bear to stay here. The accommodation is terrible. Really small. Even you can't turn around in room. Every facilities in here are worn out. The price is unreasonable high and the serivce quality is very poor. Please don't waste your money to live in here. Otherwise, you will regret.
