It is extremely clean, floors are washes abot 10 times a day, it is spotless. Pool is nice but small, showers spacious. You can eat there or for half the price across the street. Only nuisances are some guests hanging pool side from 7 am to 5 pm drinking gallons of beer and pints of vodka, being loud and splashing into the pool. This happened one day, misbehaving English and Australian. The rest of the pack were quite nice . Location is not i the center but surrounded with all kinds of tour and

it's OK for your money. BUT be aware of their bus ticket scam. A ticket to Vientiane costs KIP 110.000 at the bus station, same ticket at the hostel 180.000, HEFTY OVERPRICE!!! Bus station is not far away. if you rent a bike for a day you can easily make a good saving. Also the tuk.tuk to the bus station is a scam. Driver ask for KIP 40.000, but finally he will KIP 20.000. He also runs on low battery, so you must push his tuk.tuk to get away. Apart from this, staff is helpful and OK

the house is nice and is located in the old Town. It could have been quite great BUT there are some draw backs which are really not inevitable. 1.- kitchen is very small with limited facilities 2.- lights are very poor. There is not a corner for reading or Writing. Doorms are poorly illuminated, no reading lights, lights at reception is very poor, kitchen and baathrooms on the low side 3.- the house is buid on a slope thus many stairs and steps. They could be less, have markings, have hand rail

dorms are rooms i a flat modern building, thus lack of particular charm and character. Location is great, very Clean, safe and a large kitchen to use. Break-first is very good, all served by Tomi the owner. He takes care of you AND you can discuss albanian history with him in English, if you are interested. Just not the usual bla,bla,bla, you can dig Deep into the subject!! I am very pleased with my visit there. Take into account that Saranda center and waterfront is all made up with NEW houses

to my taste one of the best value for money hotels. Rooms are spatious and beautifil, fine furnitures and floors, quite and excellent location, fine break-first etc. It is not a fancy de-luxe hotel, but friendly and welcomming. Bathroom is spatious with tub and shower. I find nothing better for my taste and the price I pay.

this is my favourite spot in central Cairo. Real good value for money. Friendly and helpful staff. Fine rooms. Clean. Regarding what you pay their performance is great. I am a senior traveller and appreciate yhe calm and quite atmosphere there, no night club, karooke and other noisy stuff.
