Stayed in the dorm. Six beded. Amazing view of the city from the 9th floor. Dorm was nicely done. The remote of AC was kept in the lobby only due to strange reasons. Receptionists were rude and a little harsh to deal with. They have a cloke room for keeping your luggage if you are planning to go outside and...

Firstly, this is not actually a true backpackers hostel - it's a hotel which has SOME dorm rooms. The one I stayed in was a 6 bed mixed dorm with AC and an en suite bathroom. The beds are really comfortable and you get your own locker (no padlock provided) and the best part is the FREE buffet breakfast, which...

I've stayed here for two months in the dorm room, and it was great! The staff is so friendly, even the people of cleanliness, always smiling. The breakfast is the best that I had in my trip so far. The beds are good, not too hard as usual in Asia. Very clean and in a excellent location.

This hostel is definitely more of a hotel, the private rooms are really nice and very clean as well as having a great view. Free breakfast is also a bonus. Only downsides were the lack of atmosphere as it is definitely not a 'backpackers hostel' as stated in the the name. It would also have been nice to have had...
