NO STAFFS, POOR COMMUNICATION”

Its more like a hostel, with bunk beds. I choose three bed private room which is good. On arrival, I struggled to find the elevator to reach the 8th floor. Just walk past the stairs at ground floor to find elevator. There are two floors. A welcome note was hanged indicating our name and corresponding room name. But the owner assigned wrong room and there was no Key. Waited for 2 hours at lobby and finally someone came and assigned the right room. Phone numbers given via agoda were not at all responding. There was an emergency number printed in welcome note which saved us. Otherwise stay was good. Clean place, three shower rooms which are shared. Toilets on both floors. Its good for long stay.

It's alright~”

Didn't get a reply via email hence had to contact the host via AirBnb message and she was quick to respond and was very friendly. Had to check-in at 7am, hence the host left the key at the door for me. Location is so easily accessible that I felt silly asking for directional photos from her. Cleanliness can be improved. She only speaks mandarin Chinese.

Not too bad, but not great”

There's no reception and the place is a bit hidden. We stayed here twice, a week apart. The first time was Wall l simple, but the second time they hadn't prepped our room and hence no key was available. Was fixed within an hour, but it cost me an expensive international call that all of a sudden made the price not so good.

Worst place ever!”

There is no signage outside the building which makes it impossible to find. We probably never would have found it without the help of locals. However, the location is great though once you can find it, is it very close to the station. There are no staff at all, you have to check yourself in to the building. Not very helpful if you have any question. Room was ok size but mattress was non existent and we basically slept on a piece of wood for 5 nights. Room was very dusty and dirty too. Also, security is not good as anyone can walk in off the street you don't need a key or code to get into the hostel.

Not an apartment. ”

We booked this place as the place we wanted was not available but there’s not enough or clear info about the place. The place is advertised as an apartment but it is not. It is kind of a hostal with shared bathrooms. The only pro is the location. Cons: not clean, bathrooms are smelly and VERY dusty. The towel is minuscule and the sheets seemed they were stored in a long time so they’re not fresh. I wouldn’t recommend this place....
