The bed was not the best and the sheets looked a bit used. Also the toilets and showers could use some renovation, but still ok to use.
The location was very convenient right in the town with many restaurants nearby. The room had a good aircon and a fan, which made our stay comfortable. There was supposed to be no wifi in rooms, but we managed to catch it even there. It worked well in common areas.

near gaya street, lobby fine

Our room had no windows and felt a bit cave-ish, since the walls were painted brown and dark
It felt really like a home, good showers, great personnel, they could help you with everything, they clean your room and make your bed every day (which is not that normal in a hostel I've noticed). From the hostel you can reach everything in the city within a 10 minute walk

Stay in 5 beds dorm, our dorm mate bring in guest at very late night and having sex in the dorm. I can`t sleep the whole night. Complain to the staff that at 6am in the morning; but the staff only said " I will tell my manager" why not just kick the guest out of the room asap?
Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean hostel as well. Great location. Walking distance to few nice place in town

Good location and nice common room. Good backpackers vibe.

Stayed in a private double room with an airconditioner, which was well worth the extra few dollars. The showers and toilets were nice and clean, room was basic but great for what we paid.

poor wifi on 3rd floor (that's kinda good too)
staff friendliness and information, the airy interior of the hostel, wifi AND PC station, in the heart of Chinatown, close to bars, restaurants, markets, supermarket, but still quiet and safe

It wasn't clean. What they call breakfast was very poor and badly organise. The property has a serious damp problem that's why the whole place smell so heavily.
The reception area was fine. The location is great!
