Positive Reviews

Clean accommodation

Spacious rooms

Satisfied guests said that their rooms were much more spacious than they had expected upon paying for a hostel. The inclusion of balconies was a pleasant surprise for many guests, who were able to relax at their temporary home before and after exploring the city.

Many guests said that the location of this hostel was prime. Travellers were able to access many wonderful shops and restaurants on foot. Nearby Chinatown also provided plenty of opportunity for exploration. Satisfied travellers were very happy thanks to the convenience offered by this property's location.

Negative Reviews

Not weather-proof

Multiple guests lodged complaints at this hotel during bad weather. In cold months, the heaters frequently did not function. To make things worse, the roof is leaky, so in heavy rain the place is littered with buckets.

No Wi-Fi to speak of

Many disappointed reviewers had serious problems with the motel's Wi-Fi speeds. People across several review sites said that the Wi-Fi in their rooms operated too slowly to be in any way useful. This made trip planning very difficult for a good amount of people.

No air conditioning

One of the most consistent complaints made by frustrated reviewers was that the air conditioning at this hotel is not functional. To make matters worse, the mosquitos in summer can be quite intense, so guests looking to air out their rooms had to choose between bug bites and sweaty nights.
