In a city packed with picturesque places to stay, Ayado is an odd proposition: two rooms in a concrete office block. But what it lacks in physical charm, it makes up for with genial staff and, for the price, great amenities. There’s free internet access, free tea and coffee, a spacious lounge and a manga library. Bedding is dormitory style, with two rooms of five comfy bunk beds. One gripe: the en suite showers mean that early risers usually wake the rest of the dorm.
