Nice staff, cleaning could be better
Very friendly and helpful staff/owners. Really nice set-up with a huge outdoor area and comfy seating, big kitchen. Safe surroundings with plenty grocery shops open late, cafes and restaurants. Big room, well-lit. Wifi hit or miss. Quiet area and hardly any outside noise, but 1 of the nights loud music from within until 1am. Shared bathrooms defo didn't get cleaned through my 2-day stay, probably longer. Shaved off hair all over sink, soap tray too sticky to use.

6/10 Good

Not your typical hotel. Free breakfast, but you have to wash your own dishes. There were a few bugs in the bathroom. Also, beds are not comfortable to sleep in. Staff was great. I would recommend this place to people flight solo, but not families. Great location.

No hot water :/
We got to the hostel late at night. It took the lady very long time to check us in. It was a hassle for her to try to let us park at the property. There was no hot water. We only spent 1 night there. The place seemed safe.

2/10 Poor

Confirmed room given away!!
When I got there, the reception said I had no room.That they had a problem with Expedia which he said Hotel.com is part of. After me showing my dissatisfaction he offered me a room with a shared bathroom, which was terrible !!!! It smell of cigarettes and it looks terrible. I told him that I wa not happy with how they treat me as a customer as they had my telephone number and could had called me. I had driven over 4 hours and all I wanted was to rest. The room which was confirmed by you guys was on suit by the way. Very very unsatisfied with this place .
