This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Overall a decent place, but lots of minor inconveniences and things that just aren't that good. Friendly owners, but frequently hard to find. The toilet gets wet if someone showers. The bathroom door had some kind of metal plate on it, which clanked loudly every time someone closed the door, meaning you wake up along with the first people in the guesthouse.
The only things I'm really enthusiastic about are the location (very close to BSI bus station, thus convenient for going to/from the airport - while still being within easy walking distance of the city center) and the breakfast, which was one a big table, leading to conversation with the other guests.
