  • Reception person is at front desk 24 hr. Door locked at night but can knock or use code. Very clean, great atmosphere in cave like rooms. There are multiple levels & areas. Multiple clean bathrooms. Same day laundry service. Great location on quieter side street in safe part of the Old Town. You can use a few routes if you want to avoid the market. Rooftop option was cool (mattress & blanket provided), nights were very cold in April. I didn't care for all the posted propaganda.

  • We had a private room on the top floor, which was just gorgeous! There is a sink in the room (although I do not think that is the case in the shared rooms) and communal bathrooms. They were quite small with toilets, sinks, and hand-held shower sprays that often resulted in soaked roles of toilet paper and a musty smell. Perfectly sufficient for backpackers and good value for the money.
