1/5 Terrible

Business traveller
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
They are racist theives. I cancelled because of the pandemic and they refused to refund the money. Do they want me to catch the COVID virus and die. It was a lot of money close to a thousand US dollars.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
I could not make the trip and the hotel refused to give me a refund. The hotel was wicked and inconsiderate and it was daylight robbery. I did not pay for two days like other people I paid for two weeks. It was a lot of money close to a thousand US dollars and they kept the money when I cancelled in advance because of the pandemic. It is not my fault there was a pandemic . They are racist and theives. Do not go to that hostel. They said I bought a non refundable booking. So what. The airline gave me credit everyone is giving credit. Everyone is giving a refund they understand there is a pandemic. This hostel is heartless and are theives and racist because I am black.

Wonderful hostel! It’s clean and safe and family friendly. Right by the train station and the lake, as well as being close to bike trails and restaurants. Walking distance to old town. The free breakfast is also a highlight!
