This place smells. It smells of boiled meat, dirty bathrooms, damp carpets, closed rooms.

Beds and linens are great! Fan in the room. Shower curtains are new. Cleanliness is great. Toilet needs to be serviced as water is leaking through shower heads and toilet bowls. Excellent customer service! Needu and Andrew assisted in our booking and made our stay a memorable one. Andrew rectified the error in our booking at past midnight! He brought us up to our beds! My travel mate is uncomfortable with the boys in the room. Needu gave us an upgrade. We were well taken care of!

I would not stay there again, nor would I recommend anyone stay there. Place was filthy, not well maintained. Atmosphere wasn’t nice. Not any space to relax in shared facilities. Walked into the main shared lounge area and There was x rated videos being watched and allowed to be watched with no regard for other people. Staff member walked in our room after one knock while we were getting dressed didn’t wait for any response. Bathroom was missing windows and was dirty.
