The place is well located (close to restaurants, seaside, bus stops… and the area is rather quiet). The room was big enough and had all the equipment i needed (desk, hangers, bed, air-conditioning). The staff was helpful.
The thing I wasn't satisfied with was the cleanliness. Although the bedding seemed clean and fresh, and so did the bathroom, i cannot but think that the cleaning is done there in a rather sloppy way. The bed itself (not bedding) was covered with tones of dust and some sand, the floor under the bed had dust and some trash. The corners, the lamp, the window frame, the picture frame… all had significant amount of dust. The sides of the stairs and some parts of the floor outside the room had the amount of dust that you can find in a place which hasn't been cleaned for months. The door had some sort of fungus growing on it. I cleaned the bed headboard myself with a wet antibacterial wipe (which took me less than 10 seconds…) to make sure it's clean, but it's not the way it should be. Overall, if you are a kind of traveler who has "seen it all", then the place (considering its good aspects) might not be bad. If cleanliness is very important to you, as it is for me, I would suggest waiting untill (hopefully) the cleaning method is improved. Hope future reviewers will update on that part.
Cheap and convenience
