Rooms and Services
Who doesn’t like cleanliness, in fact, that is one of the first few things we check mark to finalize a place for stay. Fortunately, it fulfilled that criterion for us and was clean, green and quiet.
The dorms are clean; they are kept clean thanks to the chalk-board rules written outside them. Things like respecting other’s sleep, keeping your muddy slippers/shoes outside, not putting your laundry to dry just anywhere, they have a separate area for that and more so. A must for a peaceful and harmonized stay at such places. They had bunk beds in the dorm. They also have a private room.
