Very good experience! Great location and amenities
The location is absolutely amazing, it’s just a few minutes walk to the cluster of museums and supermarket. Though it’s located in the uptown area so not much affordable food option. The room is not too small and relatively clean. Staffs are super duper helpful and kind. Definitely a good value of money. I’d definitely come back and recommend it to friends and family.

Thank You!
I wish they allowed access to food I stored in their kitchen before 1 pm. It might be nice to have a self service hot water station for tea or coffee. Everyone I encountered was lovely, kind and helpful. I don’t know if I would stay again just because I have a personal preference for a quieter space to exist in but if you’re into lots of activity and a fun atmosphere, I would recommend.

So so hostel
The location is super nice and the chilling area is good but rest of the conditions is so so. The price is good enough considering to hostel's location

Very good 8.0
Checked in 11pm Tuesday night, some kind of staff party happening. Pressed the buzzer at the door a few times but no response, another guest was having trouble with his key card also. Someone else eventually swiped their card to open the door. Got to the reception/bar and waited about 10mins. During this time almost 10 staff walked past/through the area with little acknowledgment, although it was obvious we were checking in rather than buying a drink, by both of us having our bags on our backs. Eventually a girl (not seen previously) attended to us and said she just needed to finish serving a customer at the bar and she would be right with us. A minute later and she attended to us and we were sorted for the stay. room was tidy, clean and well presented. It was a little small and difficult to open the door when everyone had their under bed lockers pulled out, but hey, its a hostel so its to be expected. We did enjoy our stay and will stay again, the local area was quiet and not far from a few different tram stops so getting around was easy. There are some steeps stairs but that has been mentioned before, so guests should be aware.

Exceptional 10.0
Staff very friendly. Bed comfortable. My request for lower floor was ignored so 5 floors with steep stairs not fun but admittedly I didn't raise an issue and was aware prior . I think dorms should be smaller and have a privacy curtain.
