Useless -- Don't even think about it
I booked it via a booking site, which said it was a Hotel and this was completely untrue. they don't have a manager in the front door. You have to dial a number and someone comes to let you in. At times, the person does not appear and you wait for hours. There is no proper check in system. The guy operates on paper bits, not even on a ledger, let alone a PC. I was promised a particular room, but got another one. AC was not working and it was very hot. There was no garbage bin provided anywhere. It even does not have an elevator so forget climbing the stairs if you have heavy luggage. The only positive thing about the place was its cleanliness, rest all was trashy.

Cheap, but not completely worth it
Located in the middle of Chinatown, you are confronted with strange smells sometimes, and this includes inside the hostel. The management can be a bit confusing. I met a Chinese lady that let me in but couldn't check me in, then a Chinese man that checked me in but couldn't provide more help, and then finally I met the manager who looked and smelled more like a homeless person than anything else. Overall I'd say this is not a great place to stay. In the dorm there is no locker to put your belongings. If you're staying in the basement (accessed from outside) you still don't have a key to get into the main building. There is no area to sit or relax, basically all there is are rooms with beds. Finally, the check-in and -out times on here are wrong -- it's check-in from 12.30, and check-out before 11.30. If you're looking for the cheapest place to stay, and you're not scared of a little dirty, or this is the only place that has rooms available, it's not a horrible option. But if you have the choice, and you don't mind paying 5$ more for a decent place, then avoid University Apartment.
