After a long day of travelling, and trying not to be scammed by taxis, I was disappointed to arrive at this hostel without a welcome, or anyone at the reception desk. I waited for over 5 mins at the front desk while other staff walked past. I said “Hello” several times, and finally after raising my voice saying “Hello”, did the reception staff came out from a room just behind the desk - still no greeting or welcome from him. Not impressed, especially for a “Poshtel”.
The rooms were small, but clean, with good air-conditioning, and a mini fridge which was really nice! The luggage storage is right in the bunk with you, which was a bit tricky for me on the top bunk to get my suitcase up, but locker was nice and big and even had a small personal item locker right beside the bed.
The washrooms were nice and clean, shampoo and shower gel in each stall, enough showers and toilets on each floor that there was never a wait to use them. The hostel as a whole, was very clean.
I did feel a bit scammed my first night, as I just wanted to have supper in the main floor/lobby of the hostel - I was told by staff to go up to the Sky Bar - I hesitated, as I wanted to stay down to check out the area after, but was it was insisted upon that I take the elevator back up and go to the Sky Bar for supper, but then had to pay almost 15% of my bill (after I already tipped) added charges that were not explained or outlined anywhere prior to ordering.
