Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
You get what you pay for when you stay in this property. It is a hostel so there is no maid service or towels but you have cheep, convenient and clean accommodation. The best tip I can give is to take ear plugs as it can be noisy at night with people coming and going.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
This place is terrible in all sense of the word. The staff is rude especially the guy who does the night shift. They made a mistake with my booking and didn’t offer an apology and instead of helping me find another place to stay the two individuals who do the night shift sat there like two idiots. The guy told me to find another place and didn’t even care that I had payed money already. That guy is so rude he doesn’t deserve to be working with people. If he doesn’t know how to work with people he needs to find another job.
