    It's close to the airport”

    I only spoke to the receptionist. He was very friendly and accommodating. Frankly the place is frankly a bit dilapidated though, and it was clearly a DIY project. For instance the shower big enough to accommodate four people had no soap holder. Also the private room had not one towel. The room was rather chilly and the blanket provided wasn't really heavy enough to stay warm. If you're a light sleeper it's pretty noisy all night. Because it's in a popular spot downtown you'll hear drunk bar goers passing by as well as cracked-out homeless people. Furthermore they don't really enforce quiet-time as I head people talking, TV's blaring, and people slamming things around most of the night. Apparently, if you know where to look there's a coffee pot but no cups. However, it's close the airport.

    Great place to rest. Kitchen does need a little TLC. Better stove, better refrigerator and few more pots, pans and dishes.

    Bad experience”

    The hostel was very dirty and old. The bed and bathroom were smelly and dirty. There was nothing in the hostel even no drinking water. Also, it took you 10-15 mins to get to the metro station. A bit far from downtown. The staff was not responsible as they were always late for work.

    위치, 직원의 친절함, 위치

    많이 청결하진 않지만 가격의 합당한 시설을 보여주고 있습니다. 간단히 머물다 가기에 나쁘지 않습니다. 하지만 청결에 많이 민감한 사람이라면 추천하지 않겠습니다.
