The accommodation is ideal for students, and short-term guests. Some very helpful staff members on board- Mr. Steven Zhang especially. Very safe and secure, and clean as well. On the downside, internet is a bit too expensive.

The apartments themselves were small but clean and came as a nice change from hostels as you can have your own privacy & room for a similar price. The shared kitchen was small however and the bathrooms needed more cleaning that they received. The location was good, a little walk from the cbd but close enough. The paid wifi was... More

Overall the standard was fairly low. The bed wasn't even a proper bed it was two bits of furniture with a board on top and then a mattress which was bigger than the board which made lying anywhere near the edge of the bed a hazard for falling off. But as a place to crash after a night on the... More

Staff weren't overly friendly but they weren't rude so no problems at checkout. I stayed in a room with a double bed in the 3 room shared apartment. When I walked into the apartment there was a woman in the kitchen, it felt like I was walking into someone else's house as there were shoes and things in every corner... More

Good things with Columbia is the location, the price and the possibility to cook your own meals. The rooms are basic, but clean. Its a 140 cm bed, small desk and a closet. The appartments are paired, so when you first get in its a shared narrow hall with a kichenette and a bathroom that you share with the other... More
