    We were here only for an overnight layover, but the staff was very kind and attentive to all our needs. Very safe and close location to nearby restaurants, and a 20-25 minute drive to the airport. Would stay here again for a longer stay.

    We barely stayed here a night (arrived around 12pm, left 3am the next day) but the staff was super helpful explaining where to get dinner and how to explore the city. Great location, near all the markets and a big square. Cute hostel, and there was a nice cafe beneath.

    Stayed here for a night, it’s loud and you can hear everything from the outside, there’s no lockers in the room, only a small room that has some old ones but you have to ask staff to open the door so it’s very inconvenient if you just want to leave the valuables. Everything was ok but needs a rennovation and new beds.

    Ants on the table, limited bathrooms, WiFi not the best and no atmosphere at all. Bedroom right next to the main road so couldn’t sleep past 5am. Location was central and provided rice beans and egg for breakfast.
