    Worst accommodation I have never met in my life

    1. Lots of mosquito are dead on the wall with blood disgusting! 2. Beds are not beds. Like stones not comfortable 3. Bathroom, washing basin is terrible. Dirty water drop straight to floor also yakky smell is coming up. 4. If fire is up, no exit. Everybody will be dead. Window is blocked by steel bar and just one access to downstairs. So dangerous. 5. Environment beside building is no good as well. Messy spoooky

    Pros: Nothing

    Cons: Nothing

    Location: Hard to find

    Stayed 6 nights in Oct 2017

    4/5 Good

    Close to subway station and convenience store. Some eateries nearby. Johnny is helpful. There is laundry service available and that is great.

    Stayed 3 nights in Jun 2017



    The drain was very strange - everything from the sink drained in the opposite direction across the floor, so you basically had to step in it to get around the bathroom. The pillows had stains all over it, which was a bit unpleasant. Location was very convenient as it is close to the war memorial as well as the subway. Check in and out was a breeze.
