This place really needs better signage. The entrance door doesnt face the street and you need to go up a ramp which it shares with the ramen shop next door (side note real good noodles there). It does have signage but the queue of people waiting for a table at the restaurant obscures it.
After you wrestle your way past the long queue for the Japanese restaurant you find yourself in like a tardis of a place. Serious like 4m ceilings spacious modern lobby....totally unexpected and unreal.
They've got a massive outdoor timber deck which would be sweet to use (unfortunately it was raining the day i stayed) . Other common areas include a chill out downstairs area including tv lounge and dining. I think the owners must be National Geographic fanatatics as they had all these magazines lined up alongside other mainstream magazines. The humungous billard table was also a plus, god knows how they brought it down!!
Kitchen was fully decked out, gas stoves, ovens, fridges, freezers and microwaves. AND for a change they didnt ask for a deposit on the plates and knives, obviously they trust their guests unlike other places I've stayed.
On the rooms, it was awesome, I slept in a single room, it felt like a proper bed and i'm not sure why but it seemed bigger than other single beds i've used. I got me own TV and the room had an inroom safe like u find in some hotels. They provided linen and quilts. They made a point at reception that you weren't allowed to use your own sleeping bags which is a good sign they want to keep the place free of bugs.
Toilets down the hall, nice and new, like the hand dryers, you slide your hand in and out, very sci-fi tech.
Service was very friendly, but they seemed new and didnt have things like visitor maps but they were more than willing to give me directions to the tourism outlet, but the point was that they seemed to care which is refreshing
