The place itself is located in what I believe used to be a shopping mall, there are a lot of unexplained noise in the room, we had a constant humming going on until around midnight, it started again around 8 am and was very weird as it was not heard from outside the room - neither porch nor corridor.
The room was very clean, tidy and basic.
the aircon wouldn't heat even though we were told we can put a high temperature case the thin blanket won't suffice.
This place is a perfect choice for the budget backpacker, if you are into an ensuite room - try getting one in one of the nearby hotels for ~$10 more.
