I found my single room to be quite comfortable and quiet.

Be aware that the hostel is in an older wooden building with very thin walls so you hear every creak, doors opening/closing (slamming), bathroom fans, etc., so bring ear plugs. My private room was comfortable, but would become very hot in the summer. During my stay, there were a few inconsiderate hostellers (migrant workers) that got up at 2 am to go to work & had loud phone conversations on speaker phone in the common areas. Staff did little to educate these folks on proper hostel etiquette.

The WiFi is unusably slow and randomly disconnects ~ would not recommend for those who may rely on the internet to make plans
