눉There is only one shower room, and many can be kept waiting for their turn to use the shower. However, I have feedback this to the staff and was told they are looking into adding one more shower in future. Actually the current shower room has enough space to be partitioned into 2 shower rooms if space is an issue.
Lights out is at 10pm in the dorm, which I feel might be too early as since we need to queue in line to shower, we won't have much time to do our personal stuff (eg travel research or packing) after dinner and shower. Although the common area lights out is midnight, some might prefer to do their personal matters in their dormitory area. I had to use my own torch for research reading after 10pm. I understand that other guests might need to rest, but I think 11pm might be a better time? Or maybe the hostel can gather feedback about the timing?
It's still quite warm in September and the hostel has a policy to only switch on the aircon at 10pm. I arrived first day in the hot afternoon and was told that the aircon couldn't be on until scheduled time. I'm alright with not having aircon to save energy but maybe a fan can be provided in each dorm so that when it's very hot, especially in the afternoon, the guest can use the fan?
눇I like the quiet environment. The staff are friendly and helpful. When you arrived, they would first show you around the place and explain the rules of the hostel. They will also help you with the questions on how to move around the area. They are also open to hearing feedback about my comment that one shower room is insufficient and they said that there are plans to add another shower room in future.
