This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The guy who runs this place is nice enough, quite nice actually, but that's nowhere near enough to recommend a stay there. First off, it wasn't that easy to find in the building since they'd changed floors. We stayed in the private room which supposedly had a private bath but it's shared with the owner, and the room itself is barely larger than the bed. Not overly clean looking. The elevator wasn't working when we left -- lucky it wasn't when we had to go up 5 flights with our luggage, only down. But the worst part is the late night noise. Many of the guests are Israelis taking a trip after miltary service, and naturally they're in BA to party. Extremely noisy; even the owner had to scream downstairs at them to shut up -- at 2AM!
Luckily we spent only one night. Doing BA again I'd go online to one of the shortterm apartment places (BYT is what we used there and they were fine), and get an apartment through them. Or, if you're not familiar at all with what section of the city you'd like to be in, stay at one of the cheaper hotels for 2 nights and look at a few shortterm apartments during that time.
