The room is very good equipped, a hairdryer, washing machine, micro wave, fridge, which is really amazing comparing to the price per night. The staff...

Residence EO is proof that you need not check in at a 5 or 4 star hotel to get clean, comfortable lodging while travelling. Despite the very affordable price, the service received from this hostel does not lack anything. Room is spacious, Mr. Lee is always ready to help, we have the freedom to come and go as we please...
