I stayed there for 2 nights. People are nice, but there is no cleaning in the rooms and breakfast is non-existent. Luckily there is GAD on the first floor. Surely there are much better options for that price. Location is very good though, but there are a lot of hotels in this area.

We stayed there for 2 nights and everywhere were smelling meat, some stranges.. The entrance is full of the smell of meat because there is a restaurant , they both use the same door.. Inside of hotel also smells.. Sorry area is good but if you are worried about cleaning, it will never be good choose..

I highly recommend this hostel. There's actually a lot of competition at this price point, and I'd return to City Plaza again, confident that it matched or exceeded its competitors. The staff are very helpful, there's free WiFi, most rooms have a balcony and private bath (shower, toilet, and sink). Towels are provided, too. The rooms are clean and basic,...

At street level this place seems less than inviting - entrance to building is in an alley right by a busy main street, and to get to the hostel on 6th floor you need to take the scariest elevator I have ever been in! As you take the elevator up the floors you see spiderwebs, stray cats, darkness and dirt...
