One of the best stays in this trip. Nice, quiet rooms with comfortable beds. The amenities included well stocked kitchen with all kinds of utensils in marked drawers. Great common area and copious number of shower rooms and toilets that were well maintained as well. The only thing that I'd want changed was the wash basins. They were super small. Haven't seen such small wash basins. If the tap was opened fully, the water would splash out. But otherwise was a lovely place to stay.

Very clean. Staff are friendly. They have quiet hours starting from 11, so you can sleep well. It's nice for young people who travel together. However, if you're claustrophobic, this hotel may not be suitable for you due to the bunk bed type. Although they have kitchen that guests can use, it would be nice if they also provide (free) breakfast.
