Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
You get what you pay for. Beds have no privacy, blanket is incredibly thin, there's little to no sound isolation, and to be honest the rooms smell kind of bad. Lots of disrespectful backpacker-type tourists, many of whom don't respect the rules (including taking off shoes). Would like to see rules better enforced, but it seems they don't have the staff for it. The good things are proximity to bus station and some decent restaurants nearby. They have drinks for purchase that are very reasonably priced as well. There are better places to stay at nearby for similar prices but much better quality, particularly near Arab Street.
