눉The place was a huge disappointment. For starters, the place operates a hostel-like charging scheme, i.e. charging per capita, not per room. While it is a valid model in itself, it was not apparent at the booking sites, where this establishment posed as a hotel. As a result, we had our first cold welcome there, when upon arrival we were charged an extra 50% of the booking price for an 11 year old child, despite the fact that the room we booked had 3 beds already. The second unpleasand surprise was the room itself, which was called a “loft” at the booking site. It was probably converted from some kind of storage, as two(!) of the beds were located very high under the roof in a tiny niche compartment. In order to get there one had to climb an about 10-foot long and fairly flimsy ladder atatched to the wall with tiny screws. We felt that the ladder was not safe for adults, for sure. The beds themselves were very small and hard even by Asian standards. The window was tiny and completely covered by bushes outside. AC was not cooling properly that well-like room, and one had to operate a fan in addition to AC in order to get proper cooling. The house itself apparently had no soundproofing of any kind, so we were treated to listening to a loud Chinese party and then to a sounds of someone making out. In commbination with a lamp that had no off switch, the noise from neighbours, the AC, and the fan ensured a very unpleasant night for us, while we simply wanted some quality rest before climbing the mountain. In short, the place is a terrible value, while much better accomodations were availave in the near vicinity, as we learned later.
눇One positive thing that can be said about this guesthouse is that the host spoke good English and agreed to deliver our luggage to the next-door hotel upon checkout.
