A gang of drunken guests kept us awake one night. Staff was not in control. The in-charge staff made little effort to know their guests and stayed behind the sign-in desk, a sure sign of the "I'm in charge" attitude. I welcomed some of their suggestions, such as the cheapest way to get to the airport. But the name "Smart" hostel is misleading and I got the feeling that all the owners (whoever they are) t wanted was my money, Over-priced. Their hotel-hostel connotation needs to be looked at. Either you are a hotel or a hostel. Location was okay.
