  • Very nice place for a budget traveler. All the rooms are private and the place is kept very clean. The location is great. I was in the middle of the German Colony, which is right at the foot of the Bahai Gardens and just a 10 minute walk from the train station. I would go back for sure.
  • The place is built in an office area, and seems as if it's just extra space they're renting out and wanted to make a quick buck. Beds were uncomfortable with mold growing on the walls. TVs while nice and modern didn't work properly with any cable channels. The "outdoor seating" is for the office space below. The place has walls incredibly thin, which allow you to hear everyone snoring 3 rooms away. There was no option for private bathrooms and hot water ran out after two minutes in the shower. Horrible experience, do your best to stay away.
