Great price. Clean and friendly staff
Very pleased. Nice single dorm room. Plenty of towels and even coffee supplies Would book here again.

Great if all you want is a clean bed and bathroom
Good. I generally am a minimalist when it comes to finding a place to stay. I just want something clean with a bed and a bathroom. That's pretty much all this place had, which was perfect for me. The room was clean and comfortable enough, shared bathroom (shared with one other room assuming anyone is even in the other room) was fine. Does the trick. This is a dorm room, so the beds aren't amazing, but I didn't have any trouble sleeping (some may find this difficult, so if you are worried, ask to try out a bed first). Also, the bedrooms do not have AC nor is there an elevator. I was on the 3rd floor both nights I stayed here, I don't mind hauling my luggage up 3 flights, but that may not be for everyone. The lack of AC may also not be for everyone. So take that into consideration as each person may be different here. Also for their great rate, you get breakfast. Which is a bonus.
