Down stair is karaoke...
the hostel was in the center of Ximen and very easy to access to the area. However downstair was a karaoke place and people were singing all night. Too noisy. No more for me.

Very good 8.0
The bed was pretty spacious, unlike many hostels I've stayed, the bunk beds were stable and did not make any annoying squeaky noises that was a huge plus. However, downstairs runs a karaoke place and you could hear people sing, there were free ear plugs provided at the front desk but if you are a sensitive sleeper than this not be your ideal place to stay. It was a bearable noise to me and I didn't use the ear plugs. The downside of the hostel was the lack of the restroom and shower rooms, you might have to wait for shower in the morning. If the restrooms are full, I'd just bring everything I need for the day and head out to use the restroom in the MRT, I've done that a few times, luckily MRT isn't far. Very convenient location, and friendly staff, the wifi seemed not always steady for me but overall it's worth the price.

Good 6.0
The area is nice and convenience that you can get to everywhere in a easy way. The hostel is on the 8/f and 7/f is karaoke so you can hear people singing in the midnight.

Great to stay, but the entrance(ground floor)
Only an issue is the entrance of this building, because it is same block with a night entertainment club, feel uncomfortable and insecure for females. Good for budget or backpacker traveler, in terms of dorm style accommodation it's consider great option Free breakfast (I love it very much although everyday same and self service) having lot of fun making own. Eggs ham bread bun jam coffee tea! Good enough:D Great location , Starbucks , 24hrs convenient store , 24hrs pharmacy (Watson) just next to it
