hard to find a shower that had hot water running, i other than a couple of staff most didn't seem to interested in you or having anything to do with you


Great hostel : )


The location is excellent and there is a security guard in the front door, so it doesn't like a hostel. It was a old house and all painted in white. I like this very much!

A really beautiful place, with a big lobby and clean rooms. Wifi can be detected in rooms as well. A major bugbear, however, is the washroom situation. The shower and toilet are placed together in the same stall, so it's always wet and squelchy. But for its price, it is great, because they have room cleaning service, and one really feels safe, with the presence of security guards.


Absolutely amazing and beyond our expectations. Great place, clean and had all the facilities necessary for the weather. My friends and I were impressed by the architecture of the building and genuinely surprised by its simplicity yet completeness.


I was glad to stay here. The staff was very nice. There's not much amenities at the hotel, like a pool or restaurant, but it's a nice hotel if you simply want a decent place to sleep. And it is in a good location as there are many things around Chulia street that are worth seeing. I would stay here again. This hotel has shared bathrooms and showers. It's actually not so bad at all.
