Good day. Thanks”

At first, it was a little hard to find a way, but the residents showed me the way on the street, so I found it. The staff is very kind. I was so grateful for all the heavy carryers up to the higher floor. There's no water in the room, so you have to get it from outside. The room is clean and equipped with disposable shampoo and body wash. Since it's a dawn flight, I went to a cheap place to wash and rest for a while, but I'm taking my last trip with ease. Thank you.

Theres one guy that speaks quite good English so if you're there trying to speak to the receptionist and they can't work out what you're saying they'll call him. He is very friendly, an example was he cooked us breakfast early because we had an early bus ride, earlier than the displayed time for breakfast, which he brings up to your room. Overall it was an enjoyable stay.
