    Only the location is the only thing that is positive about the place, or perhaps the hostels are good, but I can't confirm cause I was in the private room.

    The images posted are nothing like the actual place, the staff were busy engaged in their own agenda, unhelpful and unfriendly. They just dumped us in the room, no explanations, nothing.

    The room was nice and clean. Staff was amazing, really helpful. We loved the fact that hotel offered free driver at night to go to nearby shop, cafe etc. We stayed in a private room and loved the little kitchen in the other house, where we could make tea etc.

    The door in our room, near bed was not the best. The wind was blowing through it, making the room rather cold at night.
