Great Hostel stay except for the cold shower
Everything went well except the shower didn’t have hot water which is hard to endure in Winter time. The Hostel should really fix that problem

The blanket is too thin for this cold winter weather and there's no way to adjust the air conditioner in the room. Otherwise, the place is nice and clean, and the people at the front desk are friendly. A safe and clean place. But because of the blanket condition, I probably would not come back.
