I really enjoyed to stay in this hostel because it had a great location, friendly staff, and reasonable price, but it still has something need to improve. For example, the room was too hot ,the room has no air condition, and the bed which was made by wood so it would make noisy sound for light sleeper was too small. Overall, it is a perfect hostel for someone who does not mind these problems.
