      Position and food deal

      Lots of noise during the nights. At 2, 3, 4 A.m during the nights a terribile noise by drunk guests. Night watchmen completely absent. The room is without windows. It was impossible to stop air conditioner. Very bad hostel. The worst i've ever met.

      It is good to stay in the hotel, especially the location. You may easy to find the supermarket and shuttle bus nearby.

      The room is not so clean as I expected. Also leakage in the room I stayed.
