          The area is noisy and messy but the hostel is clean. Most main attractions and good restaurants are within walking distance. Staff is very attentive. Our room faced the main steet which was always noisy but if you can get the room on the other side, if could be a perfect budget stay for few days.

Кровати удобные, не шумно, окна выходили во двор. Есть лифт. Есть мини кухня:плита, холодильник, чайник, посуда. Из минусов В номере холодно очень. Замерзает под утро.

          You pay what you get 划算但設備粗糙”

          We stored our luggage after C/O, but due to we would not have the key to get back (cuz the room is on 2F), so I informed Victor(the owner) when I will came back to pick up the luggage then to catch a bus to airport. However, there was not anyone to answer my bell when I came back, I have to ask other neighbor to open the gate for me, but I still can not get in to the hotel on 2F. After waiting over 30 mins, I decided to look for police to find a locksmith, so I left my wife who can barely speak English outside the hotel's door, in case anyone who can open the door. Finally, Victor came from nowhere inside the building and opened the door for my wife when I was look for some help outside the hotel. We picked up the luggage and ran all the way to catch the bus just in time. It was a horrible experience and we were not sure whether Victor forgot the time or even on purpose. In term to the room facility, you pay what you get, the warmer did not work, and the hot water comes and goes, so it was quite cold in the room during our stay was in the mid Jan. The location is great though, it only take you within 10 mins to the train station. 我們在C/O後將行李寄放在旅館, 但因為沒有鑰匙所以跟主人約定確切時間回來取行李(因為星期日, 所以擔心主人會有事情需要外出). 但我們回來時卻沒有人開門, 只好按別戶鄰居請他們開大門讓我們進到室內. 我跟太太在二樓的旅館門外等了超過三十分鐘, 期間一直按旅館的電鈴希望裡面有任何房客聽到聲音, 後來我便決定留下不太會說英文的太太確保若有人回來可以讓我們拿行李, 我自己到車站請警察找鎖匠開門, 而在我離開一陣子後, 主人才從旅館隔壁的房間走出來幫我太太開門. 我太太很堅持主人是故意的, 因為我們在門口大聲敲門, 隔壁的主人不可能沒聽到, 但總之這是一個很糟糕的經驗, 也差點讓我們沒坐到飛機, 所以才跟大家分享這個遭遇.
