The location is very close to my school and very safe
The breakfast needs a little bit to improve, omlettes,extra eggs,variety
We stayed at this place because of the close location to the venue to watch the A-Ha concert. We have a fabulous time and the venue was clean and the atmosphere was amazing.
I cant really complain about anything actually... we were very happy with our room
Dirty dated and pool was not fenced off. Peter was ok but couldn't find his pocket when the hospitality should have been reciprocated. TV in common room on all night and continued throughout the early hrs of the morning
This property is close to super market and the eating street. It's also in a quite safe area where a female can walk around alone before dark. It's a bit close to the main road, so during the evening it is not that safe, but if you are with the others, it's okay to go out for a bit. The dorm room can be very crowdy when it's full. We had up to half full and it was really packed up. The window is not possible to open wider, and the door is normally locked. there is only fan in the room so not so nice smell when there are more people in the room. but the bathrooms and kitchen are often kept quite clean, and there are guards in the house to keep people safe during the night. It is nice. However, people keep on telling me they lost something during their stay. things go missing possibly too many people are using the same area. I kept things locked all the time and I didn't have issue. The owner runs daily tours and also package trips and the price is very okay. One can consider going out with him if there is still space left. I didn't get to join the tours because it was full or canceled due to weather, however the others told me it was fun.
