Nice budget hotel for backpackers
Posted Jan 4, 2017
Conveniently located, the hotel is ideal for single traveler or small group of people. Individual room, yet small, provides enough privacy at this budget price. Showering and toilet facilities are adequate and in great condition. Staff are very friendly and one of the staff was helping me to bring the luggage upstairs to my room at check-in. There is no elevator so it maybe inconvenient for people with big or multiple luggage. If you are a light sleeper, make sure you have ear plugs as sound proofing isn't ideal between rooms and the hallway. Also, if you are going in the winter months, spend a little more to book a room with air-conditioning (which is also a heater) as it gets really chilly for rooms without. There is no hot water other than the ground floor facilities. You will have to wash your hands or brush your teeth with cold water if you use the facilities on each floor. Wifi was ok but during peak hours in the evening it gets rather slow. Despite the minor inconveniences, Hotel Toyo has met my expectations at the price I am paying.
