When I first got there, was put in a 6 bed room with very little ventilation, stunk and really warm. turns out the boys had turned A/C off. Sheets were not clean - hair all over. The night manager was nice enough to move me to a individual oom. Next day I paid the extra and got a single room. That room was very nice- clean, airy, own fridge. the location is great. A very social friendly atmosphere. However, at night people do tend to hang in central area and it can get noisy. Walls are thin


We had a great stay and the personal touch with the owner always being willing to stop and chat and ask us for any ways in which they could improve was great!
