We did not eat breakfast. The location is very easy to access by public transportation and the staff were extra helpful. One gentleman even walked my daughter and I to the Whole Foods place to pick up some dinner. And even though I had booked for three nights, the owner understood that it was not suitable accommodation for me and my daughter and reimbursed me for the upcoming two nights.
I did not realize that it was in the red light district. This wouldn't bother me as a backpacker, but with my twelve year old daughter, it was not suitable. Also the private room was very, very small. We are small people, but it was almost too small for us.
Could leave the luggage for free and use facilities last day
The room was very warm
Helpful people, clean rooms, quiet
nothing, it was great!!
Great location and room was great and tidy.
Bed was very uncomfortable however my friends beds also staying at the hostel was much better. Also the noise from staff cleaning at 7am with a leaf blower and also garbage trucks at 5am made the stay less enjoyable.
