English of the staff is not good. when i chek in, before i have ordered 2 nights so i will check out the day after tomorrow.But the staff said : "you have to check out at 7 am tomorrow".I want to use wifi in my room.i could not use wifi in my room. But after that i go to the lobby near the reception i could use wifi. Why the staff did not tell me "no wifi in my room, but there is wifi in the lobby". Except 2 above troubles, I think everything is ok with me, specially it is cheap but comfortable.
