Our Hostel have two type room.One type is ''dormitory type".It is share room. Of corse, dormitory type room is separated men and women, and the rest room,shower room also.The common space is spacious. Other one type is "Private type" for couples or family. We are asked a lot by the hostel of the dormitory type; "a restroom and a bath were messy, and failed"; "It's only the thin plywood partition in the room of Asian hostel"and"without feeling cramped room clean".
