Strategic location where there are a lot of restaurants and beauty stores nearby. Walking distance to subway station. Staffs here are friendly and helpful. They can speak good English and thus communication is not a problem. Simple breakfast is provided too. It's worth any penny.

We stayed in Bong house for 5 nights and we didn't like it too much. The first impression was good as the staff was very nice. But it seems that the room hasn't been cleaned very much before we arrived. The bathroom had such a low ceiling that you couldn't stand straight. Also, the while bathroom was full of fungi...

This hostel is very near to halal restaurant, Persian Palace Restaurant. Just one minute walk. The hostel rate also very cheap and the room we stayed was comfortable. Highly recommended for those who looking for cheap place to stay but still need a nice place to stay. The staff also very friendly and helpful.
