A new discovery for me and I had a good experience. I was only there for a short time so can only comment on my few hours. The lockers are very small so you can't fit a lot of stuff. I could not find a window to open in my room which made it smell a bit but nothing I couldn't handle. The location is good. There's a metro stop 5-10 min walk and then a 3 min ride to the central station. A 10-15 min walk to China Town, so good location. I would however like female only dorms. Just as an FYI if your a light sleeper. There's communal WC, showers and lockers outside the doors which makes it quite noicy. I would consider this property again.
