This is more of a family hotel than anything else. The rooms were clean, but it seems that they do not keep the AC running as it was difficult to breath when I came in. Also, even though I booked for two beds, they tried charging me extra for the additional person. They did not have my reservation, and I had to print it out, I was lucky there was room because otherwise I would have been stranded there. The breakfast is not good at all, Pastries, milk, and bread. Would not stay there again.
I stayed 2 nights in a shared room. The only thing I did not like is the fact that they did not give me a room key and I needed to way somebody every single time I wanted to go to the room. Breakfast was not included. The rest was ok. Everything was clean. Receptionists really helped me with some phone calls I needed to do in order to book my excursions. Location is the only main disadvantage, but a bus stop it is just there so you can travel anywhere you need by bus. In general I liked it.
Very nice stay. Food in restaurant very well priced & affordable. Only thing that let it down was that when I came to pay the balance on checking in, the receptionist had never heard of HostelWorld, didn't understand concept of having paid a 15% deposit, tried to add pounds & dollars and couldn't read English, so had to use google translate to read my confirmation because she didn't believe the line that said 'to pay on arrival' was what I was actually meant to pay. It took 40+ mins to sort it.
