6/10 Good

Property was nice. Beds comfortable. No microwave or cooking facilities in room but a shared living area and kitchen. The walls are extremely thin between rooms. At 12.30am we had to knock on room next door and ask them to turn down their dance music. Could follow their conversations easily. Hosts were lovely and kind. Great location.
