The wifi serves slowly and unstable. The refrigerator is very dirty.

I booked a 3 beds private, and the staffs directed us to a 2 beds room, and shared a bathroom with other 2 groups of people( and I saw some people coming and using the bathroom from next door). One of the mattress is broken. I don't recommend female solo tourist to stay there, because one night, there's a drunk guy knocking our door around 2AM and shouting.

If you look past the old fashioned interior, the place is nice. We had a nice spacious room and a cosy double bed each. You need to ask if you want housekeeping when you stay there, we didn't which meant we had to use the same towels. There is no safe in the room but I think reception has one. The shares bathroom was inconvenient at times if people were showering and both bathrooms are in use. There was no soap or hand towels in the bathroom. The location is great as it's by the colleges!


friendly staff made it an easy place to stay, very helpful pointing tourists in the right direction:)

Facilities were good, but the outside appearance of the building we stayed were very old with a stinky smell of old wood and carpets
