We only stayed there for one night, but I wish it was longer. It’s a cute place, very nice & helpful hosts. The room big, clean & comfortable, the shower a bit narrow but long & clean. There is a self-catering kitchen where you can make your own meals and also a washing machine.

"En suite rooms are great"
"there're 2 rooms with no private bathroom"
"Only a few rooms to chose from I think they are all similar. We had one with the share bathroom (which there is only one) but waiting was never an issue."
"Our room didn't have a window with a view, which wasn't a problem for us, but if you want a view, specifically ask when booking."
"Get the new refurbished rooms. AMAZING"
US$50 - US$104 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
