Liked: Owners are travelers so they know what we are looking for. Quiet location just out of the CBD. Near supermarket and restaurants, etc.

Disliked: Room was HOT. A/C was minimally effective, esp. in the 9-bed dorm. Most of the people staying here were long-term workers so their agenda is different than a traveler. Too many people on their laptops!
