    Superb

    I had a wonderful stay! They do history tours of the jail every morning at 11am, super interesting and a huge bonus. It's worth the stay just for the experience. The staff was wonderful and have planned group activities!

    In general very positive; my biggest disappointment was the breakfast. I found the food was not replenished very well, Showers were slightly not as clean as could be. Overall great experience.

    המקום הוא אטרקציה בפני עצמה אז זה נחמד אבל האנשים שמגיעים לשם יכולים להביא אתכם לשוק אפילו באמצע הלילה לדוגמא בחור שהיה על סמים והתפרע כל הלילה ובחור אחר שפשוט השתין בתוך החדר. מעבר לכך המחיר סביר בהחלט. בהצלחה

    This place has so much potential, but it is lacking in a fair few ways. The beds are super noisy but not the worst. One shower and toilet on our entire floor that was pretty dirty. Rooms are run down and the small steel key for the doors can be hard to keep track of, (put key rings and tags on them guys!!) The constant changing of the main door code is also a pain in the ass. Location is pretty good but a little overpriced overall.
