    Great Location

    The hostel is quite large and has a variety of room accommodations. It was well run with places to store bags on check in and check out. My favorite part about this place was the location. It was near the museum train stop which made getting to other parts of the city a 5 minute train ride or a 20 minute walk. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the heater worked well.

    The heater was very strong and I was very dry throughout the night. I recommend a lower bunk in the winter to avoid the dry air from the heater.

    Good location

    1. Dreadful place, a rundown 2. Downstairs area where you eat & hang out smells of poo/sewage 3. Patronizing & inconsiderate attitude of staff, rude, hostile & intimidating notices everywhere: "Big Brother is watching you - do your dishes, no jokes!" where a polite "Please do your dishes" would do, "If you activate smoke alarm we'll fine you $500 & evict you in the middle of the night" where a simple "No smoking please" would do 4. Overpriced ($90 for a single bedroom, more than in local hotels) 5. Partially empty vending machine, some products expired 6. No guests allowed in rooms 7. Extremely slow Internet connection 8. Very slow elevator 9. Very limited breakfast 10. They will keep your deposit if you don't do the dishes - illegal by law

    The ensuite room came with clean towels, floor mat and blankets. Other than the squeky bed, everything else was perfect for the price we paid. The location of hostel is excellent, just 5 mins walk to Paddy's market / Chinatown and 2 mins walk to free shuttle bus stops. The hostel has many security cameras installed, making us feel secured.

    As mentioned above, our double bed (with a single upper bed) was super squeaky. Any slight movements will create noise.

    The location is really convenient. Free Wifi is awesome though the speed is a little slow.

    I hired a towel, but the cleaner just took it away without asking. (I didn't want to change it every day; One day I came back and found the towel was disappered.)
