10/10 Exceptional

It is clean even it has shared bathrooms and toilets only. It is small, but still nice with reasonable price. I like that I can open the windows on two sides of the wall to have breeze from the outside. It is a bit smelly at first when you just enter the room. Since it is small room, the previous guest's smell still in there. However, you can open the windows and let the air from the outside in to get rid of it. Service is good too. However, if you are the one that is sensitive with sound around when you sleep, I don't recommend. The room is right on street, where you can hear everything from the neighborhood. I heard violin from the next door on that night. It wasn't noisy though. Overall, it is good for the price, service and cleanliness.
