6/10 Good

The staff is very helpful and friendly, and the rooms, being in a basement with no windows, are very dark and quiet and good to sleep in. Accommodation is very bare basic, as it’s a small hostel, and the vibe is definitely not social or party hostel but more like “it’s a place to eat and sleep.” The cleanliness was good too. Overall happy with my stay.

6/10 Good

The cost is ok for what it was. We only stayed overnight between bus transfers. The tv didnt work. The guy was ok. He did apologise but offered no other option considering we had 3 kids. It took ages for anyone to answer the door. So we were stuck out on krd with no idea how to get into the hostel. The room was ridiculously hot. Theres no air con. The blankets were stained so i recommend you take your own blankets. We pretty much got no sleep as the walls are really thin and there was heaps of people coming and going all night. You literally hear everything. Wouldnt recommend a long stay. But it served its purpose for us.
