My bunk bed had its own flatscreen TV. I like that the toilet and shower was separated.

Great stay!
I booked one of their rooms for me, so it really felt like a hotel. Room was cozy and clean. Breakfast is simple but nice (the coffee is actually really good!). Location is easy to get by in the city. Staff at reception was always super helpful. Only two things bothered me: there is no elevator to the 12th floor, so I had to go up the stairs one floor with my rather heavy suitcase; the 12th floor has a small terrace/balcony, and my room was facing that (along with 2 other rooms out of their 5 or 6 rooms in 12th floor), which meant I had to keep the shades down and lights on all the time to have some privacy.

Hostel Haru provides better services and facilities than some hotels I have stayed in. It is an incredibly clean, well maintained property in a brilliant location. As a traveller with big aspirations but a very tight budget, I really couldn't have found somewhere better to stay.

8/10 Very good

Pricey but good.
It's a little pricey for a hostel. The location is good and room is comfortable. It's not too noisy because they don't have too many rooms and this made my stay relaxing.

Great location!
This is an ideal accommodation for anyone; be it tourists or on business trips. Lots of eateries nearby. Walking distance to public transport and tourist spots.

10/10 Exceptional

The place is clean and nice. Breakfast was good. The extra perks were really a plus point, 1 bottle of drinking was provided everyday, 2 small clean towels were provided daily as well. My only 2 constructive comments would be to thicken/darken the curtains for the beds as the lights could be too glaring for the person next to us if we decide to use it late at night and i don't mind if there's a one or 2 common bathrooms/toilets that we could use other than the private ones that is attached to the room (which i absolutely appreciate) for night owls like me. I came back after 12am a few nights, and it's not so nice to be taking shower and using the hair dryer when everyone was already sleeping, so i end up not taking one, haha.
