    This hostal was very run down, dirty and small kitchen, very noisy - party hostal. Pain having to ask for pans and cuttlery everyday. Small common areas therefore confined to room.

    Out of many hostel I stay in Australia or outside this is the worst ever hostel can be, even worst than in Cambodia. $5 pick-up is fake, I waited for 2 hours at airport keep ringing them, in the end they ask me to take public train! Hostel is very run down with no constent hot water for bathing. no internet, no housekeeping and over-charge me 2nights!! How more stupid someone can run a hostel like this??
