Property is in a great location, near museum, easy walk to super market, lovely. Still along oriental Parade, and easy stroll to yummy restaurant and bars. Though very clean decore a little dated. Had a great stay :)

Overall it was a great experience. Room and shared bathroom were clean. A bonus of a towel to use was excellent. The bed was comfortable and I slept well till 5.50am when I was woken up by a baby crying and crawling around the hall outside the room. Only to just get back to sleep when someone close by in another room started being sick. In general a good place to stay if you need cheap accommodation. The yha were not to blame for the people who woke me up... It was just unfortunate.

No frills hostel with clean bed and bathrooms, friendly staff and good location. Fairly priced, it may be not the cheapest hostel in town but it certainly was worth the price.
