Rooms are good and clean. Bathrooms are average. There is a problem with the card sensor in the lift. There was a little problem with the hot water, probably because there were renovating when I was there. Hopely the problem will resolve once the renovation is finished. Overall, it's a good place to stay and is a strategic place in the CBD.


Not great although. Understand the whole building is going to revamped in the not to distant future! It needs it.

even though 19 dollars a night is very cheap, I think that a lack of ceiling should constitute a cheaper price, like 10 bucks

Great location, the matress was really comfy, no sore back next day :-). There are two problems: no plugs inside the room so u need to charge your stuff in the toillet or in the hall, second, the walls dont reach the roof, that means u hear all the people sleeping next to u, including snoring. Security good, clean place including bathrooms and dorms.
