Stayed for just one night so I didn't get a good look at the place. But the staff was very friendly. The location of the place was great. Got a cozy room for a good price.

It looks like a hotel from an old movie. Everything is kinda old and crappy, staff who do not really speak english, moldy bathroom, water from the tap is sometimes browny, but I loved it. It has a specific visual, I think Wong Kar Wai could make his next movie there.

Location was excellent, right in the middle of everything. You get what you pay for, basic rooms but good for the price. Seemed to be no receptionist only the cleaning ladies who would check you in after you ring the bell and wait around and who didn't speak any English so had no chance of asking for suggestions ect. No lockers or anything to store personal belongings and no real kitchen facilities only a little stove top
