My, you have expanded since the last time we were there. We didn't make much use of the cafe (except for the included breakfast) but you still have a good kitchen. Security and privacy was great (we had a private room) and you have many nice niches in which one could be alone if they so chose. The biggest issue was that the laundry facilities were inadequate for the number of people.

Everything is fine. The whole environment is very clean and comfortable. However, there's a little bit concerned that you guys arranged a male in the female dorm. Originally, I booked the female dorm,so,I was shocked when I saw a man in my room after I finished the shower. It made me feel uncomfortable. Fortunately, that guy is very understanding. He said he can change the room. Therefore, I suggest that you guys need more careful when you guys arrange the room for new travelers.

Maybe the staff can explain about the free food when you arrive. I think most people didn't understand incl myself if it was really free. Only the third day I took some and most people didn't take anything because no one really know if it was okay to take it. Or a paper on the wall to explain will also help! Great to get free food, just let everyone know. The bread I took and the cookie were excellent!
