“Excellent Stay - Great Location, Very Clean, and Helpful Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I stayed here for one night. A cute little place that was perfectly suited to my needs.

Close to subway and lots of restaurants close by.

Room was clean; hot water plentiful; wifi fast.

The most amazing part was how helpful the owner was. I arrived late on a Friday afternoon and needed a electric converter so I could plug my laptop into the electric socket - I was quite low on power after the long flight. The hostel had a few converters but they were all being used by other guests at the time. I asked if there was a store nearby where I could purchase one. Instead, without a moment's notice, the owner drove me in his vehicle to the local appliance store so we could get another converter.
