It was clean and affordable. The bed was very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. We learned some tips on nearby places to visit and where to pick up some items we needed. The complementary breakfast was yummy!

I arrived early (like around 11 AM) and rooms were not available, but I was able to leave my bags there for them to hold and to go out exploring the town-which was fine for me. Hair dryers?

"Definitely go with one of the rooms with 4 or fewer people"
"Go with an apartment with a private bath"
"Ask for a room on the parking lot side instead of the highway side."
"I chose a dorm of 4. Was fine, but lounge n kitchen nearby"
"Request for room away from the road, if you can. Unfortunately, you won't be able to avoid hearing doors slam through the thin walls."
US$27 - US$160 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
