Quiet and cosy ”

Stayed for 4nights in a 4pax female dorm. Shared bathroom are clean and tidy with good hot showers and free hairdryer. Kitchen is pretty spacious with simple free breakfast comprising of bread, jams, butter, cereals and milk. However, utensils may not be enough and available for use when the hostel is full packed with guest. Otherwise, I had a great stay there and staffs are really helpful and nice! :)
