Good place to stay on a budget. The location is good. They provide services like tea and complimentary breakfast. Food you will have to order coz they do not have any restaurants.The rooms are small and the bed sheets are torn.

The rooms are tiny but service is pretty good . The location is a big plus point,they wont create an issue if you are a mixed group of girls and boys travelling together. The staffs are well-mannered and helpful but the only con is the rooms are too tiny .

I stayed at the Live-In Service apartments (room 122) for twenty eight days in February and March. The rooms are quite comfortable. I had the flu in my first week and suffered poisoning from a brand name fruit drink bought from a street vendor in my second. I, therefore, spent most of the first two weeks in the room itself...
