    Backpackers style, lots of rules in the property, the manager isn't very flexible. The rooms are ok, the number of bathrooms to dormitories isn't sufficient and the not enough facilities. Have free parking.

    Just about money. They can provide what you want, but pay first. There is no friendship or any kind of help. they decide for you at what time you eat, what time you leave, when you go, etc. And the staff is threated like badly.More
