1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2009

ok..where to start this hotel (should be called a hostel ) should not be advertised. the rooms are very small with a very dark unpleasant smell. I dont really write reviews but I felt that i need to save others from this big mistake. Below is my letter of complaint which outlines all that was wrong with the room.

We were appalled by the standard of the room, so much so that we could not spend the night there, mainly due to health and safety reasons. We paid a large sum of money expecting a minimum of living conditions for the room and did not even receive this. There were blood stains on the bed sheets, which is unacceptable and unhygienic, the room smelt of a mortuary and the windows could not be opened without inviting a passer by or those dining at the restaurant directly in front of the window for a viewing. Additionally, we requested a double bed, which we were assured and not provided with.
The accommodations was an absolute disappointment and should not be advertised for rental. I have photographs to prove all that I have claimed and am happy to produce them.

Great location, inexpensive, great multilingual staff, a bit noisy, no air conditioning (a fan in the room), very handy to a public transit terminal.
