    The owner of the hostel is super helpful. He helped my friend's visiting NGO and me to book a bus to go to Iran. They also did landry for us. The location is perfect in old town. I'll get breakfast and water and tea anytime you want. ホステルのオーナーがとても親切で色々手伝ってくれます!ロケーションもよくおすすめです。

    Amazing breakfast everyday, great hot shower and you cant beat the price. The dorm room is actually a hotel room with one bunk bed, so it feels a bit intimate. You also only get one key so you will have to coordinate with your bunk mate. Overall really enjoyed my stay and met many travelers in the upstairs common area. Would recommend.

    My single room was tiny, but they manage to pack a lot of facilities into it (a decent bed, en suite bathroom, AC, fridge, a small table), so all in all comfortable. Good wifi. Compared to other places I stayed in Iraq (at similar rates), the included breakfast was quite basic. Friendly and helpful staff.
