Loved this place! Rosie the host was so helpful and nice! The kitchen had plenty of free supplies, coffee, tea, seasonings and all the equipment! Beds were very comfy! I’d highly recommend!!
No lockers in the rooms and maybe a bit far away from the grocery store!! Minor issues!!
Very helpful staff. The common area is comfortable, the kitchen a friendly place. I enjoyed my time there , nice place to get to know people.
It is very cozy and you have everything you need.
The wifi is not so good and we had problems connecting it with our laptops.
Staffs are so nice to me. Even I arrived there 9am which is opening time of reception, she kept my luggage in the luggage room and I could spend time at lounge space until checking time. It was so thankful because I was very tired after long flight. And the room was a bit small but still good tidy. Kitchen and bathrooms as well.
The bed’s like a cloud.
