The bathrooms are very dirty, The pillows are flat. The beds are noisy. The kitchen is also very very dirty. There is not enough space to seat down to eat.

Everyone was nice, always smiling, and they made you feel welcomed and like part of a family. I will be going back to hangout have a samosa and a coffee and to let them know they made a friend not just a someone coming through... I am completely horrible with names so I will say I appreciate and love you all and I am very happy and grateful that I made the decision to start my new life there. I hope I imprinted on all of you as you all have on me. Cheers stay safe and 😊 😊 😊 Brandy Thomson

Everything was great. Staff were so friendly and accommodating. It was very clean and good atmosphere. The only suggestion I would make is at some point replace mattresses and update bedding. But great overall.
