    The place was big and spacious. The building and rooms were old but good for those wanting for basic facilities only. One of the shower rooms was really small and it's very inconvenient without hook inside. Good that the hot water is good enough to take a hot shower. The family bedroom is spacious with 1 bunk bed and 1 double bed. But the bed is always making sound when climbing on & off.
