    Nice hammock, that's it.

    My stay here was not the best. The staff was friendly but I was lucky when i arrived on Sunday the one cleaning lady happened to be there because I had not received arrival instructions yet and could not enter the hotel. The downsides: there was a lot of mold on parts of the wall all over the room; I had ants the entire time in my bathroom and around the desk area; the bed seems to have had every spring pop so was difficult to sleep; the cleaning lady seems to have gone into my room at one point to change the towels and did not fully shut the door which exposed my belongings including my laptop to being stolen which fortunately it wasn't; there's a water pump for the hotel right next to my room that goes after every time someone uses water creating loud, robot-like noises throughout the day; and the construction going on right next door would be so damn loud and start at 7am, ruining any sleep people could get. Positives: the hammock in the room was fun and the wifi was good.

    Pleasant stay but could be better

    I stayed in 2 rooms over 4 days. Checking in and out was breeze. The rooms were above a shop and was easy to get to. The property was on a quiet side street off the main shopping street. The first room was better than the second room which had no clothes hanger or anywhere to hang clothes. The bed of the second room was very worn down - we could feel each individual spring on our body and our body weight sank into the middle of the mattress. Other than that it was pleasant experience.

    일단 사장님 마인드가 매우 좋으며 골목에 있지만 침대는 매우 좋았다. 다음에 또 방문하고싶다. 1층에는 바 가 있으며 간단하게 맥주 시샤 풍선을 저렴하게 즐길수있다.

    チェックインに注意が必要

    時間限定のフロントサービスとあったが、最後まで一度もスタッフと会うことはなかった。 入口の門の暗証番号が分からず、近くにいた人へお願いして玄関に書いてある番号へ電話してもらい中へ入れた。 その後のカギの受け渡しについてもキーボックスにある部屋のキーを暗証番号を合わせて取り出す方式であり、前述の方の補助を借りてなんとかクリア。 たまたま日本人とベトナム人の二人組がいて本当に感謝。 ホテルについてよくよく確認してみると入口に番号についてはメールが来ていた。部屋のキーについてはそのメッセージでやり取りをすると教えてもらえるとのこと。 翌日別件で連絡をしたが、メールが返ってくるのに30分ほど待ったため、チェックインの時も待つ可能性がある。 また、暗証番号のメールは15時過ぎに来ていたので、前日に来ていただければ助かる。 最後の難関は部屋の鍵。1号室だったが、鍵はささるが何度回しても回らない。 5分ほど格闘し、ノブを少し引っ張り、回転しながらカギを回すと回った。その後3回ほど出入りしたが毎回3分は格闘した。とうとう最後までコツは分からなかった。 また、宿にたどり着くのも一苦労した。 googlemap等の地図が場所と違うため住所を探しながら到達。 以上マイナス点を書いたが、部屋はエアコンも効いて快適。 夜間も出入り自由なのも気楽。 コスパは最高なので少し改善すれば常宿になりそう。

    Je déconseille fortement cet établissement : bruit incessant dans la chambre, quasiment aucune présence physique de personnel, serrure défectueuse.

    Die Lage ist super. Zentral und doch ruhig. Die Matratze ist extrem hart und ungemütlich. Schimmel an den Wänden und hatten auch Kakerlakenbesuch, womit ich in asiatischen Ländern durchaus rechne.

    Location is great!

    Everything is great, but I was unlucky that some construction were going while my stay, it made so much noise since 8am.
