Love this place! ”

It’s a good value for the money. A few tips if you plan to stay here: bring earplugs if you are sensitive to noise. It’s not horrible but walls aren’t as insulated as they could be. The door schedule is a bit weird, best to discuss with the staff if you plan to come back late and get their telephone number and WhatsApp so you can reach them. Other than that it’s awesome.

Clean and beautiful. Free tea as a welcome service was a nice touch. The shower had good water pressure. Some staff members speak English while others don't, but it wasn't a problem. Wi-Fi was also easy to connect to.

На несколько дней можно остановиться, в номерах тепло. Были в конце марта. Шампунь необходимо брать с собой или покупать, остальное все есть. Цена соответствует качеству. Рекомендую.
