    Nothing can beat that awesome location in the middle of the city centre. However, the hostel is not very clean (the duvets were disgusting and full of stains, the floors dirty and our room was never cleaned during our 6-day stay). The receptionist Kenny was...More

    Located in the heart of the China town region, the facilities are good - showers particularly. The wi-fi was not free, as I stayed for less than a week. The staff were friendly, and offered good advice for getting around and what to do. The...More
