2/5 Poor

Travelled with group
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
This hotel moved me to a different hotel 36 hours before arrival and notified me via Email which is understandable not to check so often on vacation. I had already paid for Parking near the old area and picked the hotel based on its location. The new hotel was on the other side of town. No compensation was given.

Clean, cheap and friendly!
This was a great place to stay. Staff friendly, allowed you to use padlock and printer free of charge. I stayed in a female dorm but will still had our own toilet and spotless bathroom. Close to the metro station. Would definitely recommend!
