Loved this location. Stayed here a second time. The common area is closed during mid-day, which is unfortunate.

This hostel was very well run, with a friendly and helpful staff that made it a perfect place to be. It was always quiet at night so I could sleep well. It is close to a subway station making it convenient for sightseeing. The only thing I can suggest for improvement would be larger and more opaque curtains on the dorm beds.

We appreciated the front office staff gave remarkable suggestions and made detail step by step guidelines. Beyond my expectation, the young men at the reception helped us with our heavy baggage both check-in and check-out. We must say thank you again to the young man who helped to carry the bulky baggage from the hostel all the way to the subway line station on 13/9/2017. We offered him tipping as a token of appreciation, but he refused in a polite manner. THANK YOU SO MUCH !
