17 July 2013

Liked: Just I wanted house for staying at that moment. This hostel is good for staying short term with reasonable price. Good thing was quiet and silent because always someone tried to sleep all the time thus I had to move quietly. So It was good for sleeping.

Disliked: I stayed at domitory for 6 people which was really poor atmosphere. There is no lift so I had to carry my baggage by myself from ground.(My baggage was so heavy) It was so cold and I got a cold at that moment, but blanket was so thin and it couldn't make me warm.
