01 December 2008 Tibor J. would recommend this property

Liked: I was impressed about the safety and security. Being from Europe and staying many Hostels I can say that it was the most safest place that I have ever been. It do need a little bit more space in the room to keep the belongings because the closet was not easy to access.
