Rooms in the sparkling new building are a modern, plain box with clean tile floor, windows and plusher amenities like air-con and TV. The upstairs rooms in both buildings have a big shared wooden balcony with ample tables and chairs making it a great spot to relax and enjoy the free coffee and tea on offer and the street view of the quiet neighbourhood. The rooms in the older building are just as comfortable, but the new building is obviously fresher and more attractive. This place is run by friendly and efficient folks and is one of the better value guesthouses in this area, especially if you can snag a corner room with two walls of windows. It’s also extremely popular, so advance booking is recommended.
