4/10 Fair

The pictures are really misleading. The property can barely be used as some place where you just sleep during the nights. The rooms are nowhere close to as nice as shown in the pictures. They are old, with all kinds of stains of the walls, the washroom is decent. Overall the area is extremely tiny. Its not worth the price IMO.

Location was good but the beds are dangerous. One of the beds in room 202 would just collapse if you knocked into it. I ended up sleeping on the floor because the bed collapsed during the night. Not great. I know it was cheap but I expected a bit better. Thanks

Broken beds
When first entering the room there was a funny smell in the room and then when we came to put our bags on the beds we noticed that the bunk bed was extremely dangerous as the whole thing was unstable, when we notified reception they said they would check the bed and “if it was faulty” they would change our room however they told us that there was nothing wrong with the bed and it was perfectly fine even though the top bunk about 10cm in either direction and the bottom bunk was at an angle. Due to this we had to put one of the mattresses on the floor and sleep on that as the we didn’t feel safe with someone on the top bunk. The brace on the single bed was at a 45° angle and bowed when it was sat on.

8/10 Very good

I wouldn’t advise this as a place for solo travellers looking to meet people. It’s basically hotel rooms with as many beds crammed in as possible. It’s a little close quartered if you’re sharing with strangers! If you just want a bed for then I guess it’s alright. In my room there were no sockets near the bed, the main lighting didn’t reach the lower bunk and there’s no separate lighting near the beds. That being said, beds were comfortable, room and bathroom were clean and communal area was decent. Good value for money. I stayed during Karneval and some foul reprobate defecated in the urinal in the communal area which rather out a damper on things but that was hardly the fault of the establishment.
