Do not stay here: owner films people in the shower and when asleep
While staying here for Chinese NY on the weekend of 28/29 January 2017, the person I was travelling with caught the owner, Jack, filming him in the shower (evening of 28 January). The shower cubicle was locked but the walls do not reach to the ceiling and Jack was holding his phone over the top in order take videos and photos. Looking at Jack's phone, we found videos and photos of other current guests and past guests going back months. The videos and photos were from over the top of the shower cubicles, through peepholes in the shower cubicle doors and in the bedrooms while guests slept. We called the police who arrested Jack and took a statement from three of the guests.
Looking now there is a review here on TripAdvisor from March 2016 saying that someone was filmed sitting on the toilet and that the staff may have been in on it. Sadly, I now know this to be true of Jack. As far as I know, no one else working there at the time of our stay was involved.
Prior to this unpleasant discovery, Jack had been a a very friendly host, but this was covering up a darker side.
I have never had to leave a review like this before and I hope never to have to do it again. However, it is important to me and the others who were involved that the truth is available so no future guests have to go through this.
If you read this and are not convinced, feel free to message me on TripAdvisor.
