Nice place to stay
Receptionists could have been friendlier. Free pancakes in the morning were great, you have to wait quite some time though. Free dinner was okey. You get something for your money. Wilson car park is right behind the house, which is expensive though. Overall it has been a nice stay there and we would come back.

Location is away from main road but noisy in the evening. Clean room, simply facility.
Agoda had the wrong information about the type of the room when I booked, but your staff helped me solve the problem so fast and efficient. So appreciate! Free dinner for us, chicken curry but the food is not hot enough and the quality is just so so. Pancake cooking is a very nice experience with other backpacker.

club is next door
we were staying for 2 night on level 1 and couldnt sleep for botv night as the club music next door were so loud that non stop going till 4am...this is ridiculous! The bed sheet were also stained with blood. Even though breakfast is included, which is self made pancake, the stay were disappointing.

Impolite staffs.
Foods they provided for dinner are good.
Bit far from Oriental bay and close to town. The staffs at the reception are not kind and helpful. Even the day is New Year's Day I said" Happy new year" but no body answer and reply at all. Absolutely ignored me. Even always gave an impolite reply. Need them to be trained how to treat and welcome traveler they stay with your backpackers.

Nice location
Nice location, good staffs, free pancake!
This is the second time I'd been there because I couldn't fine an accommodation with a nice location like this, hotel's staffs was fine but some staff at the restaurant under an accommodation was quiet, she wasn't friendly I think and that why I didn't want to have a free dinner!
