Sad face IconDisliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
I arrived at 12nn and I was told that the check in is still 2pm. But when I was getting ready to go home the other day, there was another client who got in at around 11am which is 3hrs advance from the supposed to be check in time. I was put in a room where I was the only girl. The aircon is not functioning so it was very hot. Even though each bed have these blinds, your room mates can still see you if you have your lights on. I approached an attendant when I left my key card inside the room and he looks kinda mad when I approached him. So overall, it was a nightmare and I would definitely not come back.

This is my third time staying in the hostel. But sadly, it will prob be my last time too. The standard has dropped quite a lot since 1+yr ago. I have previously highlighted to the hostel staff that they need to inform mgmt to improve on the shower facilities and the creaking door. This time when I went, the situation remained. In fact, it worsened. The toilet floor is often wet. It get flooded quite easily. The water took ages before it get warm. The door to the shared dorm is always creaking so it really affect sleep quality. Hopefully this review will put a wake up call to the mgmt. It was a lovely hostel but now, there's better hostels around
