    Very Good

    12 Jun 2022
    A TV in the room would be nice since there are no windows. I had to wait until I got outside to see what the weather was like Also, the front desk should tell the clients that there is a kitchen and where it's located. The site where I reserved the room didn't mention it. I could have had a cup of tea after my arrival, but I bought some, although I had my own tea bags. My room was very clean. The front desk clerks were professional and friendly. A shout-out to La and the fellow from Nepal

    This place was way over priced for how bad it was. Reminded me of hostels in India. Dirty showers, tiny private rooms, no hostel ambiance. Would not recommend.

    Rooms are so hot with nofan or air con, beds probably the most old and creaky and wonky, and ridiculously loud - from this I’d say 0* don’t stay. HOWEVER THIS IS NOTHING compared this this: there was a guy staying with serious mental health issues, I tried to tell the staff to ask them help him, instead they TOLD HIM, he then sees me in reception and I beg him to leave me alone and he threatens to get someone to kill me IN FRONT OF STAFF WHO DO NOTHING AS HE LOUDLY CORNERS ME IN TO A LIFT
