Reviews (8.7 Excellent)
was not sure about the word position in the ratings. It was a little cool in the bathroom but the building didnot have centeral airconditioning. I had a very nice time with the tours and dinners.
Very Convenient Place! Staffs are very busy. but, responce is very quickly and friendly. Breakfast is normal. but orange juice and milk are lightly for me. And You have better have egg. You can take tasty breakfast. Finally, Thank you all hostelers and staff.
It is a nice hostel. It would be great if it is closer to the subway.
The facility was very good, and really appealing for young and old alike. The breakfast was delicious and abundant. I would have been really pleased, however there was a stuffy smell when we first arrived in the bedroom, and an inconsiderate room-mate arriving at 3am disturbed my sleep. Otherwise it was certainly good value for money.
great hostel but no wifi in the rooms
