4/5 Good

Cozy little spot in the middle of the city

It was kinda tough to figure out where the place was given the small sign and hardly noticeable numbers due to the color choice. But after going up about 4 flights of stairs, comes this cozy little spot in the heart of the city. Air conditioner works fine and the food offered was alright. Just don't forget to bring your own shampoo/soap and towel!

Pros: Specifically, the bunk beds. It was nicely decorated and positioned. Felt really cozy

Cons: Perhaps the water pressure needs to be stronger and the signboard showing where the place is

非常讚! 唯一小小缺點是沒有電梯,以及公共空間沒有冷氣。 但是瑕不掩瑜,很對得起這個價錢了!服務跟早餐比我朋友住的星級酒店還好

첫날 숙박이라 싼데 골랐는데 후기 개뻥같음 이상함 ㅠㅠ 진짜 개더러워서 돌아버리는 줄 그와중에 샤워기가 물이 질질 나오다 말다 해서 씻지도 못함 진짜 개빡침 조식은 쏘쏘..
