I am concerned over how companys like boking.com and other sites that sell rooms for travellers put their good name on risk and help not serius business to sell their products/rooms. The room was dirty, dangereus and looked more lika a drugnest then a hotel. We was at the fourth floor and realized that in case of a fire no... More

We were shown several rooms- the first stank of... More

Rude agressive staff - Stains all over the walls floors and beds - everything broken - very very dirty - makes a south american prison look good only plus point was we found some cans of beer in the fridge that hadn't been cleaned out from the last people that stayed here. Never book this its terrible!

I write to you at 4 in the morning the night after I came home from Amsterdam, scratching my bed bug bites that number around 40. Yes, this hotel has a bed bug problem, and No, they didn't do anything about it while I was there. Don't ever ever ever go to this hotel. Not only is it infested with... More

DO NOT STAY HERE. Booked with an open mind because we could only book our desired hostel for two nights (the flying pig downtown, would HIGHLY recommend) so booked this one for an additional two nights. When we walked into our room we noticed the holes in the walls initially. Then the mould in the celilings, specially around the lights.... More

I am afraid this is by far the worst hotel i have ever stayed in. The stuff was really rude. The rooms were really filthy. They rotated our towels between each room. I know that because we had two rooms and there was a stain on the towel of the other room and the next morning we had that towel... More

If you want to sleep, dont go to this place. My room only had a padlock on the door so it was impossible to lock the door from the inside. Everything is dirty and the pricess are laughably high. Beds are full of brown stains and the rooms are falling apart. The only good thing in this place was the... More
