Dark and depressing. No lift. This is a cheap hotel for backpackers. If you are over 30 don't even consider it.

location is very good, close to everywhere. room is clean but no elevator in the build have to carry up luggage. You will need 3 access codes total in order to get into your room feel more security. I personal recommend this guesthouse.

Great location! Located right next to the metro. The staff was very helpful, the beds were comfortable, and I enjoyed my stay. The only thing I would have changed would have been the bathroom location- it is located inside the room and the shower is a shower head in the open bathroom. This makes the entire bathroom wet, and sometimes wet feet comes back into the sleeping area. It's much more convenient when the bathroom/shower is outside of the bedroom, and when the shower is separated by a door from the toilet and the sink.
