A super comfortable place to stay.
This was a rather great place to stay. My room was comfy and clean. Really, James Blue Hostel is the epitome of comfortable. The proprietors are kind with cheerful attitudes, and James helped me plot out a course for the day. The room was roomy with more than enough space

Cosy and comfortable
Cosy and clean place, we were very comfortable (: neighbourhood is very close to "happening" spots at night - no lack of activity! Host James was also very helpful in recommending dinner places and touristy spots to visit. Overall, a great time!

솔직 숙박 후기
침대와 수압이 좋은 것 외에는 비추입니다. 유럽식 조식이라는 이름이 무색하게토스트와 시리얼 두 개라고 말하는 편이 솔찍하지 않을까합니다. 청결면에서도 식당은 불결했고 의자나 테이블이 대부분 많이 흔들거렸고, 개인 수저세트와 접시나 그릇 등은 본인이 챙겨오셔야하겠습니다. 남과 같이 쓰는 게 부담스럽다면 말이죠. 샴푸와 바디클렌저 뿐이라 린스 사용 고객이라면 각자 가져와야할 듯. 매일 하우스키핑 원한다면 주인장님께 언급하셔야합니다. 아니면 스킵. 전체적으로 실망, 리뷰와 사진과 안내가 실제와 많이 다른 듯합니다.
