8.2 Very Good
I didn't like being on the fifth floor. The toilet and shower room was a bit small. The last time I was on the basement floor. The toilet and shower rooms are of very good quality. Overall my stays at this hostel have been very good and I would recommend me to anybody.
6.5 Okay
It is freaking hot. Never ever air circulated and there is no fan or no air condition in any room in this hostel. Windows only opened about 2 inches and because of this, you will NEVER fall in a sleep in this hostel. There is only one area which is AC is working : BAR! Which means, when you pays more your momey in this hostel, then you can experience the AC! HORRIBLE! HORRIBLE!
6.7 Okay
good location but hostel too crowded during peak
