Bad bad bad. We stayed at here for 3 nights in private double room, and bad things happened everynight.

First night
- we found our shoes were forgotten in outside after cleaning when we went back at night.

Second night
- we found our room is opened just like that when we went back at night (remember we were in private room not dormitory)

Third night
- all of our toiletries in bathroom are missing and after we talked to the manager, she didn't do anything at that moment and she told us that we have to wait for the result in the next morning due the cleaning service already went home. We asked for their responsibility in the next morning, but the manager only gave us her confused face and pay us back only 5 bucks! We are 2 person, and of course our toiletries cost us more than 5 bucks.

We are very disappointed for their services.

Unique Qualities: Despite of their bad services, the location is verrrry good.
