Hostel Hamasen is a really nice, small hostel, where you will immediately feel at home, because its rooms are located in a former family-house and the manager, TC, is very friendly and welcoming. There is a communal lounge on the ground floor and a communal kitchen on the 1st floor and there are private rooms as well as dorms. I stayed in a very nice private room with private bathroom and would definitely recommend this room. You just have to bring a towel, but there are shower gels, AC and WiFi in the room. I was even allowed to use the washing machine to wash my clothes.
The best about Hostel Hamasen were the location and the staff: the hostel is located in the old Hamasen neighborhood with lots of places to get food and drinks, it is very close to the KMRT station Shiziwan as well as sights such as the ferry to the island Cijin, Shiziwan Bay and the Former British Consulate. And the staff, namely TC, was just fantastic, he was so nice and helpful!
