Very friendly and helpful staff. No problems at all during my stay.


Owner refuses to provide soap in the bathrooms for basic hygiene. Cant really tell if the toilet is leaking or where standing water is from. I sat on a chair in the lounge area and the stench of the chair itself was overwhelming. Loud after 10/11 pm and the staff dont say anything. There are all of three spoons and one fork in the kitchen. They are too lazy to be accommodating for paying guests, my entire backpack was stolen with things i treasure. So much stealing. Bad place overall.
