I am glad in this tour we only stay in this hostel for one night. The entrance of the hostel looks nice. However the rest, needs improvement.
We have booked to have a double room. The room and bed is ok. However it does look a bit run down.
In our floor there is at least 4 to 5 rooms and several rooms can sleep 4 people. The woman toilets / bathroom there is only 2 toilets and 2 showers. This is not adequate.
They claimed to provide free wifi. What they did not mention is there is quota on data usage. The code is suppose to last for 7 days. We get to the hostel by 6pm. We went out for a few hours. By the time we come back to use the wifi, less than hour, our quota is fully utilised.
They also do not tell u that there is no towels in the room. So if u want to rent one and the reception is closed (which I think is 7pm) in the evening , you are out of luck. As there will be call out charge for receptionist for after hours.
Definitely one to avoid.
