Comfortable stay
This hostel is near to the Yuanshan MRT station,disembark from it and you'll arrive less than 5 mins. It has a cafe, common place with TV, free hot/warm water, free tea/coffee, laundry area with washing machine and a dryer. Both washing machine and dryer costs $10 for 10 mins. The dryer isn't that good however, even after 40 mins of usage, my clothes are still damp. The bed comes with a locker, small bed lamp, power sockets, and curtains for privacy plus AC. It is clean and comfortable. Check in starts at 3, you'll be given a card for your bed to generate electricity and an access card. Shared bathroom located outside of the room, there are body was and shampoo available for all.

The location is convenient for transportation. After the MRT, it is easy to find the only hope that the toilet can be cleaned.

The environment is clean and the atmosphere is good. The beds are also very clean. The staff at the counter is friendly. It is less than 5 minutes walk from the MRT station. The traffic is very convenient and the CP value is high!
