If you are looking to stay out if the city but close enough to it on a budget, this is for you! The stairs at the entrance might be a bit rough for those with heavy bags, but you'll survive or more than likely another guest will help you if they see you! The receptionist was very polite and down to earth. Very relaxed and very helpful! I waited in the lounge while my room was prepared...it was like hanging in a dorm lounge but enough space to have your privacy. The wifi prices here are CHEAP in comparison to hotel prices!
The room was clean and relaxing.
