  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

Probably all the "guesthouses" in this district are overpriced and low quality like this one. Bed sheets were not fresh and there was no covering for mattresses. Bathroom was clean. A/C in common area (kitchenette) was nonoperational. Curtain frame fell off in the middle of night. It's an acceptable place to stay but you can find many other regular hotels in other areas that are better than this with similar price.

Solo and friends stay here!

One night in the 5 bed female dorm was just as good as the first time! Welcoming, clean and close to much food, PT and entertainment. Breakfast is above average including 2 choices of tasty cereal and milk.

Clean, Great PT and Eats Location

Easy and precise instructions from subway line 2. Quick check-in, clean and comfy bed and nice size towel. Rent a padlock for lockers or bring your own. Rooms and bathrooms seemed to be wiped clean every day. Quiet indoors after midnight, but the outdoor crowds can get loud, so bring earplugs. Female dorm has make up and dressing area so private wet bathroom csn be used for shower and toilet needs. Plenty of trash cans and they are cleaned regularly (this is so rare in a lot of hostels)! Breakfast includes 2 types of tasty cereal with milk, tea, coffee, bread, butter and jam. About 8 ppl can eat together comfortably, on the bench and stools. Slippers provided at entrance. Shoe changing area is small so wear/bring shoes that are easy to slip in and out of. Nice outdoor seating area near several eateries, very closeby. Definitely are great hostel I would stay at again.
