The host couldn't do enough for us, she is very knowledgeable about the area and related to us very well. We stayed in the Scheherazade room which was grandly decorated and had the coolest sink ever!
The communal area was a bit cluttered but full of useful books, magazines and fliers on the area.
It is located in a friendly part of town roughly 2 mins walk away from a bus stop which takes you to downtown (buses run every 20 mins or less). There is free on-street parking which is also very useful.
