All very friendly and helpful but housekeeping have the unfortunate habit of entering rooms without knocking first. This occured on at least three ocasions in our 2 day stay. The showers are weak and tepid, not upto the standard experienced on previous visits. Stained matresses on bunk beds give a bad impression.

The music in the lobby was awesome!


Great stay. Lovely staff. Good location and super helpful with info about the city.


Tiny room, smelt of body odour! No hot water in wash hand basin, no plug in wash hand basin. Nice breakfast area. Slow wi-fi.


Stayed for 9 nights. Free breakfast and WiFi. Cafe with plenty of choices re meals Deals etc. Awesome kitchen well equipped Showers were on solar system, don't expect hot showers they were luke warm, even after running them for awhile. Also push button on a timer mission washing. was given a double bed sheet folded over on my bed, which was really uncomfortable, i often woke sleeping on the mattress cover. After day four it was finally changed to two sheets. bliss. Will stay again.

The showers and toilets were a little dirty, and the staff was not so friendly. Besides that, everything is good.


They had a problem with their sewage system, the whole place smelled like a toilet. Oh yeah and our roommates were substance abusers. Other than that fabulous.
