For start when I came I been left on a street, because I didn’t had email with door code. Then when I tried to phone and to ask - no one answered, when I tried to contact trough chat option on vebsite - no one replied at all. Luckily one of the guest back to they apartments and they let me in, said code and explained some guest house rules. If not that woman who let me in I no idea where I’d be staying.

Convenient location for sightseeing and tour pickups. For the price paid and that it is a guest house, it was reasonable.

Everything was great, it's probably the cheapest option around that isn't a hostel and for that price my expectations were definitely meant, I'd stay there again. Room was comfy, bathrooms were kept clean and the kitchen was nice.

Good location. But a guy had the keys of my door and walk-in 5:30 am, telling me I was in the wrong room. Coming half way in and out. It was really unsettling. Specially when you’re traveling by yourself as a woman. Completely not acceptable.

Check in is not staffed after 2pm yet they dont let you check in til then. They email codes and info to you ahead of time. No elevator. Room was Ok but not the cleanest- i.e, some cobwebs. Great location but bring earplugs if you want to sleep early as it is right downtown near loud bars. Needed a cheap one night stay near my hotel after my son was able to join us last minute and this fit the bill. He had a 3rd fl single, private room w a sink and shared bathroom. Did not eat breakfast

Had an issue with booking that was never resolved and we did not end up staying here even though we had already paid for it. Extremely angry and disappointed.
