Spotlessly clean rooms and bathrooms. Helpful husband and wife managers. Small place with only 4 double rooms and two small dorms. A bit crampled feeling, no real lounging area. Breakfast is toast and jam plus coffee-------around the corner is terrific Chinese food for breakfast-------worth the extra. Hotel across the street has competative prices--------worht checking out.
