Liked: it had a place to sleep when so all other options were full

Disliked: no heating on (apparently the boss was away for the week & his assistant did not know how to switch it on); no real security (front door seemed to be open all night - keys were NOT given out); I checked (by email) before turning up that there would be a place nearby to watch the Rugby World Cup - this was met with a positive response by email, but when I turned up, it was revealed that there would be no where offering this service

Liked: This place was easy to find.

Disliked: It wasn't really a place to meet people. It was very dark and no real common areas, although it did have a kitchen and eating area. The kitchen consists of a sink, some burners and a fridge. No oven, no microwave, no toaster or kettle. It would be a good place if you just want to clean and sleep and leave again.

Liked: staffs speak great english and helped us a lot!! though foods are not that good. can be reached from the city central by 10-15mins walking, and there is a bus stop nearby. i think it's an ideal accommodation for budget savers, single travellers, people who doesnt care about the atmosphere in where you live, not suitable for couples. thanks very much for the hosting!!

Disliked: breakfast, dinner, and the coffee machine wont give changes
