The staff are awesome. They can give me good advice and remind me how to be safe alone. I like the location, it's near those good sightseeing.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Orient Hostel and the staff was incredibly helpful. The breakfast was not something I particularly enjoyed, but it is something for a fair price, I believe. Great place to stay, just would rather go out to eat.
