    Rope Walk Guesthouse is one of the best places I've ever stayed at! It is top quality for such a good price. Everything about the space was very clean and tidy- the rooms, the bathrooms, cafe outdoor spaces, etc. The staff was so nice and attentive. I wish I knew all of their names, but I know Richard, who was so wonderful. I was constantly brought water and little candies while I was working. Everyone there and the owner is really kind and inviting. Their cafe space is so cozy and there are these little courtyard spaces outside that are peaceful. The bedroom and cafe space have air con, the wifi is great, but most of all, I really felt like the people there made me the happiest. Thank you all!

    ・宿のデザインが素敵。フロントのある本館は個室客用で、ドミトリーを予約すると道の向かいの別館に案内される。別館の一階はコモンスペース兼カフェになっていて居心地がいい。 ・スタッフは皆親切で、観光情報を教えてくれたりご飯に連れて行ってくれたりした。 ・タオルやロッカーが一人ひとつ用意されていて、どこもとても清潔。ベッドサイドにはUSBポートx2、マルチコンセント、ランプ付き。ブランケットがとてもいい匂いだった。防犯カメラも設置されているので安心。 ・洗濯乾燥機、自転車が有料だが使える。 ・大きなショッピングセンターやコンビニ、屋台のたくさんある通りがすぐ近くにあってとても立地がいい。夜は静か。 ・難点はwifiが遅い事ぐらい。 おススメです!
