Like every other reviewer has said, there are bed bugs, which disturbed my girlfriend's sleep. This isn't a given for KK, as we moved to a bug-free guest house after. That was the only downside - great location, good Wi-Fi (though not always available in the room), decent price.


Not to recommend... Not so cheap and many things are charged extra, like Luggage storage and towels.


nice staff helpful gold heart!
