    Staff were helpful and efficient. The kitchen was clean and the system for food in the fridge very good. We had a double room; would have liked bedside lights to read by as the overhead was a bit dim. And a mirror, please!

    The staff were really friendly and the room was spacious. With covid there were mainly long term residents, but the whole place felt a bit lifeless. Good facilities, they have an oven and a pool, and a basket system for the fridge. It was an okay stay.

    I have no idea how this place is rated so highly. The room smelt bad. Mixture of body odor and mold. Shower, toilet and kitchen were all satisfactory. Just the room was really bad and the others I stuck my head into were the same. Regular deep cleaning is necessary. Also no secure lockers for your bags. Rooms are left unlocked and the gate is left unlocked to get into the hostel. Zero security. Wouldn't recommend or stay there for free.
