Location is great, close to the Esplanade waterfront & lagoon, and any number of restaurants. Plenty of entertainment all within walking distance.
This is a club & party hostel. If you want one place to sit around, get drunk and club all night, stay here. If you think you're going to meet anyone, go elsewhere or get a good night's sleep... move on. Club is below all the rooms and runs all night. And everyone who stays here just wants to be in the club, so people stumble in & out of the rooms at all hours, yelling & screaming in the hallways, and if they do manage to get in the room with their key, they will vomit, scream & leave. Would never stay here again.
The location and fecilities
The smell in the room n
have bathroom in my room, free dinner, club next/affiliated to the hostel, possibility to organize tours at reception
Hotel staff at reception is arrogant and always insufficient to any request
I liked the hostel also the swimming pool
I'm afraid that you made a mistake on payment.
