3/5 Okay

Despite the information reception is opened for 24 hours (according to Hotels.com website), I found the reception had been closed at 10 p.m. when arrived there around 10:30 p.m. Fortunately, one of the guests called the hostel staff for help, I managed to make check-in... Shower room was not so clean though endurable for me. Breakfast was simple but enough to fill my stomach.

2/5 Poor

There is a sign above the TV that says "please do not sleep overnight on the couches," but every morning when I get up, I am unable to find a place to sit and watch a bit of TV. The reason being is that there is usually four or five people sleeping on the couches with their mouths WIDE OPEN and I can see their tonsils.Not a very pleasant sight. Or what about yesterday when I tried to find a spot, there was a couple under blankets feeling each other off, leaves nothing for the imagination. Please enforce your rules, otherwise what are they there for?
