    It is OK to check in around 3am if you made a reservation on the day before. And just ring the bell when you arrive here!

    Chào bạn, Đối với phòng 4 gường (8usd/night) thì chỉ đặt được 4 khách thôi ạ vì khách sạn không có gường thêm cho người thứ 5. Nhóm bạn có 5 người thì cũng có thể chọn phòng 8 gường (7usd/night).
