Very basic but super Friendly staff

Location, price and the staff
We had a nice time at this hotel. We didn't stay long though as we wanted something a bit more comfortable. The beds were very hard and the bathroom quite old. The place was fairly rundown and dark but the staff made up for the shortcomings with a very friendly and helpful attitude. If you need a budget place to stay this is a great choice and you will feel very welcome.

The hub for my travels

Amazing staff, really sociable, perfect location.
I loved it here and I was so glad it was the first place I stayed. Krishna was the host, he was particularly brilliant. So helpful and sociable. He arranged my bus tickets and took me to the bus station, I seemed to have got a much better deal than the other tourists I spoke to. There's a really good restaraunt next door to the hotel, and they serve amazing food and descent coffee. They'll pass it over their back wall into the hotels garden for you I loved how sociable this place was, I made some really good friends and I was never without company. The price was so good too - hot showers every day. I'll definitely go back here again and again.

Budget hotel so no more expectations

Good service and very central location
Room without hot water Be carefull, the hotel gate closes at 11pm. There is no door bell, so if you can't call the front desk, you could end up sleeping on the street!!
