Liked: M. Yoo is so kind and helpful. He provides you with a map of the area and details about all the interesting points of view. Free Internet access and free laundary service are real pros. The kitchen and the terrasse are really good place to chill out and meet people.Thank you for everything M. Yoo !

Disliked: Hot water takes 10 minutes to arrive and when you take a shower, 10 minutes, it's loong ! The showers have no pressure. Moreover, the double room are not cleaned during your stay so it can become a little bit "dirty" after few days.
