I stayed here for Aug. 1-3 2016. What I like most is the free use of water dispenser, refrigerator, hair blower, kitchen utensils etc. It's like a college dormitory. The wifi is very good. The people here are accommodating. There is an adjacent restaurant that...More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.

The rooms aren’t dorm type. There’ll be a double deck bed for two people. I aint sure about three checking in. If your concern’s about privacy, you picked the right inn, then.
