Value for money”

It was my first stay with the YHA chain and the experience was great. As a solo traveler I was given a clean and well maintained dorm bed - no complaint. The facilities were pretty clean, including the showers where warm water flew steadily without drama. The only thing I could nitpick would be my snoring roommate but obviously that has more to deal with luck than the hostel itself!

Clean room”

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Booked a private room with toilet, it was clean and comes with complimentary coffee and kettle. But there’s no wardrobe or rack or hook in room to hang clothes. Room has central aircon (non-adjustable) and fan, but if you’re scared of cold, you may want to buy a portable heater. If you’re a light sleeper, be sure to bring ear plugs, bcos the room isn’t really sound proofed, and the closing of doors of other rooms are really noisy. Love the shared kitchen facility, but it really depends on who stays there and how they use the things. Lockers are available, but need to climb a flight of stairs to them. Staff were helpful to carry my heavy luggage up and down the stairs. Location is near Central station, with a new light rail stop just in front of hostel. But many shops around the hostel were closed when I was there, due to post-pandemic situations.

Great place ”

Really clean, love all the amenities. Has several rooms to be used as office, laundry in different level as well. I really enjoyed staying at the cinema, even though the screen was not working at that moment, The bad thing is the aircondition, is really high, and in some rooms windows can’t be opened and don’t smell so nice. Staff really friendly
