    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort

    OK overall, but check-in challenging

    Room was very basic, but OK. Shared bathroom setup is better than other guesthouses I have stayed at because there are multiple sinks, showers, and toilets. Check in was a bit challenging because you have to go to a coffee shop on the other end of town (which was mentioned in the listing), but then it was closed so had to call someone, find the key in an outside closet, etc.
