Liked: NIce view

Disliked: The shower next to room number 4 kept running which is a waste of water and made a mess. Bathroom next to room number 4 wasn't Always clean. Wifi doesn't work in the extra building (room nr 4). Room was clean, but very old and simple.

With my spouse / partner

Backpacking / gap year

07 November 2010

Liked: Nothing: The room was really dirty, and had ants and bugs. There were only two shower/toilets one on each floor except the basement floor. One of them the shower was broken and another day someone threw up everywhere so was really gross. The kitchen was horrid as well. Not worth the money at all.

Disliked: Everything

01 July 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Firstly, the staff made me feel at home right away. They even provided me with a job, so I could save some money for the rest of my travel. The location in KX makes everything easy: going out, visiting the city. I met some people who seem not willing to leave this place

Disliked: I just regret that the fantastic view can't be enjoyed from every room...
