I disliked the following: 1) Hostel entrance being off on alley. 2) Location next to a club.3) They lied about the number of beds in the shared women's dorm; stating 8 beds on the website instead of the more than 20 beds in the women's dorm. I wouldn't recommend this hostel to anyone and unless I were broke or desperate, I wouldn't return. Based on my prior, overwhelmingly pleasant experiences at HI hostels in Chicago and Washington, DC, I'm surprised this is a member of the HI brand.

The place is small but warm! Staffs are nice and activities are interesting! I recommend that breakfast can have more options
