This hostel was up to the standard of all the YHA's hostels. Clean, comfortable, etc. I particularly liked that the wifi works in your room and the FREE laundry. There is a great massage place nearby too. It is about 15 minutes walk to the main area where most of the tourist attractions are and its super easy to get there--literally just walk East, no turns or nothing. I like that it is further away because the closer to the tourist area, the worse the food is and the more expensive it is. So why not save a little money, make your tummy happy, and walk a little more everyday?
The only downside is that the staff here aren't quite helpful, perhaps it is because their English isn't quite fluent, but usually at YHA hostels, the staff are always happy to help me find my way around.
