    comfortable, value for money backpackers hostel

    loved the place. cosy, comfortable and value for money. bed was not comfortable but don't expect much in the first place since it's a low budget backpacker style hostel. thing i didn't like the most was that the walls were thin and i could hear a lot of noise from others' conversation. public toilet was big and clean.

    Homelike place

    Great self-space bunk bed with the curtains, lamps and fast Wifi. Every guest is requested to change into slippers like Japanese, which renders everywhere clean and tidy. The bathroom and toilet are also a plus to enjoy. Overall, the hostel is 100% worth how much you are spending.

  • 6.0.Good

    共用房的室友真的要靠運氣。這次遇到的室友都在自己床上飲食,導致整個密閉式房間彌漫便當味/零食味,非常噁心的味道。 訂房資料沒寫有自助洗衣設備,入住後看到有投幣式洗衣機/烘衣機很開心。 門口就有YouBike與捷運站,很方便。

    優點: 交通非常的方便,從火車站就可以步行前往。 旅店門口就是捷運站,要去哪裡都很方便。 雖然飯店註明10點前必須入住,但是超過時間才能入住者會給你自行入住的方式,很方便~ 裡面整體的設計很舒服,讓人覺得蠻輕鬆的~ 衛浴、廁所都在外面,雖然數量不多,但是可能是平日入住的關係,也完全不會和其他旅客搶到,水溫調節的方式很特別,需要一點耐心😂。 缺點: 房間一進去就有一個潮濕的味道,不管冷氣和除濕機開了多久都無法消除,重點是我的房間靠近主要道路,然而門窗卻不是氣密式的,再加上繁忙的街道,車聲非常的明顯,淺眠的我必須帶耳塞才可以入睡⋯ 本來以為特地選了獨立的房間,就可以避免大部分的吵雜,可惜人算不如天算😂 退房時,終於看到第一位飯店的工作人員,但是不知道是不是很忙碌的關係,所以蠻冷漠的⋯跟一般青旅會接觸到的工作人員,感覺很不一樣~
