    4/5 Good

    Location was convenient to the sights I wanted to see and for transportation. Concept of hostel and execution were good; that it is a bit of a side-business for the Red Cross has limitations, as well as the benefit to the non-profit. My only cavail is about the way the afternoon sun heated up my room: even with the blinds drawn, until evening breezes started, it was impossible to stay in the room even with the fan going. Good thing they have lobby tables & power for my devices.
