If you're tight on money, this isn't a bad place to stay. However, if you aren't, I recommend staying somewhere nicer. The location of the hostel is actually quite nice because there are a lot of dining/shopping options and public transportation right near by. Although, I think the biggest problem with this hostel are the bathrooms inside of each room. They are very crammed, and when you shower, splashing water all over the place (e.g., onto the toilet) is inevitable. Also, the walls seem to be paper-thin; I could hear the person next door cough as if there wasn't a wall there. Lastly, don't let the photos of the breakfast on their website fool you - the actual breakfast did not look like that. One positive thing I will say is that the front desk person was very helpful and kind.

Booked deluxe double room for myself. Good for solo traveling for the weekend however the bathroom/shower is so tiny. It’s a meter spaced. Beside that was good, nice location. I’d get bigger room next time.

Nice Place, Great Staff, Better Kitchen Please
Nice hotel in a great local. The staff were kind and attentive. There was a troubling aspect to my stay, however. The common area saw breakfast served with guests tasked with cleaning their dishes. I noticed several guests not using soap and only giving their cups, dishes, and utensils a cursory rinse under the water. NO SOAP! The staff then told me that no further cleaning/disinfecting was done. THIS IS VERY TROUBLING DURING A HEALTH CRISIS. Anyway, I made sure to wish my cup beforehand after that.

Lovely hotel in a great location. It had an amazing view from the rooftop and the free breakfast was great. My only issue was that the bed was quite hard so it was uncomfortable, and the room was quite cold with no way to make it warmer.
