big house with many doors which confused me several times haha. 2 toilets and one is in the big shower room, but u need to reach there by going through the host's living room. no A/C in bedroom and bathroom, which made us feel a bit hot and not sleeping well during the night, so hope Dijen would consider to install A/C in the room. anyway it was good experience generally!
