Ok for 1 night if you want to be close to airport: good for flight arriving late or early flight out (bus station nearby with buses to airport). Actual area wouldn't be good for a longer stay (noisy, etc). 1 shared bathroom/shower (hot water), so sometimes long waits. Rooms are basic. Wifi ok. Part of common area is curtained-off staff bedroom, bit weird. Place seems disorganized. Staff was friendly but very awkward, check-in took a long time. No receipts. Wanted extra money as deposit for key.


Close from airport,cheap...but can be more attractive in room and bathroom decoration.


No real kitchen facilities just a one ring burner. Communal area had a sheet put up across the middle and there were beds on one side like a dorm. Only one toilet at the property and this was in the same room as the shower so sometimes had to wait some time to be able to use it. Bed was very squeaky. School at the rear of the property very noisy in the mornings. Good location for bus station. Cheap but definatley not cheerful.
