    Location is really good, but dorm and washrooms are pathetic. No charging points for each dorm, food is not good, beds are very small, tall guys can't fit into it, ceiling paint may fall on you while you are sleeping at night, happened with one of the guy who is sleeping in upper dorm.

    I had Booked a 10bed dorm here. The quality of the cots, beds and blankets weren't any good. The washrooms didn't have any water heater, the door of it won't close, the lighting was poor. To get some hot water for a shower I had to walk up to reception and request manager several times. Power went off in the night and there was no backup. There is no network coverage in the area. The only good about it is the view.
