No ac, being in the 3rd floor was like being told to sleep in the attic of a house. No ac & no fan= no sleep Then no cable or tv usage. Pics posted to prove
The place is near to public transport. The ambiance was good. The shower was working properly (look negatives for more info) Room size was sufficient.
No elevators make you carry your heavy bags to your room. Getting hot water from the shower was hard to figure out. I had to take a cold shower the first day.
Love the area, quiet and good value.
It was quiet and was in a convenient location. Free WiFi. Extremely inexpensive.
It appeared clean-ish at first glance, but if you look closely you can see that the room is filthy. The room was ugly and depressing. The toilet was stained, and to flush it, I had to hold the handle down for something like ten seconds. The doors were thin and the locks seemed disconcertingly flimsy. I got a rash on my love handles and I can’t prove it, but I think I got them from the bedsheets. This is the kind of place you get when you can’t afford anything else. It’s safe and quiet, but there is little else to recommend it.
