You get what you pay for. Cheap good to sleep in when still travelling. For what it is. It’s good. Unfortunately with either no windows or being unable to open them. It’s extremely hot in the rooms. With no way to cool the room down. The small kitchen and lounge was a great way to meet other travellers and make new friends. Room were sufficient for sleeping in.

    Good stay

    Short stay at the hotel. The staff was welcoming and the room size was adequate. Even includes simple breakfast. Noticed that there are activities throughout the week mainly cater for people who stay long term. Good initiative.
