Even though it was a slow check in process, the gentleman (manager) was extremely efficient and quick to jump on it. Very friendly staff and there was one gentleman in particular (on Sunday & cannot remember his name) who truly made it a special experience as it was my 25th! So for that Thank you. The facilities are nice and clean and for what you pay, you get a great location in the heart of town and a safe environment. Recommended! Thanks Two Oceans! :)

Not much of an atmosphere, but for the price it was a good stay

The doorms have are very dirty and the beds very squeaky. The mattresses have clearly been used and are not comfortable. I stayed for a week and only once the floor in the doorm was swipped. The bathrooms are ok with the exception of the showers. The walls are very filthy and the curtains look like they've never been washed. The kitchen is very messy. The common area is not at all like the pictures. Outside it's always noise. I would never go back.
