Dock in - 1 night
The hostel is in good condition. Compared to others it was quite pricey. No food or drink allowed in your room, no shoes at all, no smoking, the deposit had to be on cash and we were leaving the following day so ended up with cash we couldn't spend before leaving at the end of our trip. Close to the airport so very noisy and needed earplugs. Drinks at the café were expensive. Overall it is fine, but not as exceptional as we expected. Staff were lovely!

새로지은 시설이라 깨끗하고 늦은 시간임에도 친절하게 응대해주심. 다만 거리가 도심지와는 좀 멀어서 그랩을 타고 이동하는데에 그 비용이 아깝다는 생각이 들면 추천하지 않음
