2/10 Poor

Awful stay. 1) Unhelpful and unfriendly staff 2) No towels were given despite being promised 3) Not all lights work in the room 4) Not all windows close 5) Random staff come into your room unannounced while you sleep (despite being a private room). お勧めできない

6/10 Good

Uncomfortable stay.
As we are older ladies of almost 60 years, we expected a bit more consideration.We struggled to get onto the upstairs beds that was kept for us,and getting down was another mission.Had to go ask for a regular stepladder on the second day.Also, there is no chair or table for the 4 upstairs guests in the dorm.So please consider the guests on the upstairs beds in the future.I will definitely not stay there again.

10/10 Exceptional

Great place to stay, it has a great location near the stadium and the city center, walking distance from the Water Front. For me there were only two things that I did not expect: 1. the breakfast was very basic, but upon reflection, it reflected the price, it's a hostel of course and not a 5* hotel. If you need a great breakfast there a nice restaurant(forgot the name) no more than a 5 min walk from there. 2. I was freezing! I stayed in a room for 4 people and while we had 2 heaters it was still quite cold for me when not under the blanket, it was alright, but just a little unconfortable to get dressed or shower in the morning. Overall it's one of the best hostels I've stayed at in over 40 countries I've visited, very friendly staff and great location.
