    The social space is nice. The price, considering the hotels near by, is very cheap. But the shared bathrooms are not very clean and it's small. It's well located, near bars, restaurants, the southernmost point, etc.

    Dear Sandy, We take deposit $100 and we'll release it immediately after your check-out, but it takes around 2 days to be back on your card. We take deposit at check-in time. Best regards, Sofya
