Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I really enjoyed staying here! It’s like a capsule hotel but with bunk beds that are wide enough to roll around in. It’s a fun alternative to a regular hotel and is much cheaper. The bathroom and shower room were nice and clean. You do have to pay extra for bath towels and others if you want them. Otherwise, the hotel location was amazing and the staff were very nice and helpful! I would stay here again!
