stayed in 4 mixed dorm which was cramped and lil room to even sit on a bottom bunk and im not even tall!!
The bunks were so close to each other, you cant have 2 people getting ready at the same time without bumping into each other..
Can get very loud in the corridors especially when students are present... Running around, screaming and slamming doors at 3am or later... Quiet sign would probably be helpful???
So sleep was not something i got much of in the 2 weeks i stayed here... ( stayed for this long coz i dont wanna have to find and lug around my luggage to another possibly worse hostel)
Free 1hr wifi, but net keeps dropping after 30mins and would have to wait for 10mins to log back in... =S
Breakfast- not a fan... Cheaper and better food just outside the hostel... Much more options too.
Bathrooms/ showers were clean, powerpoints for hairdryers would be helpful
Staff were friendly
Location is good. Walking distance pretty much everywhere... (if you like walking)
I wont be coming back here though was a good hostel experience for a newbie like me =)
