well, where to start..
my friend and I thought it would be a great idea to buy food the first day we got there,
the next day the food was off because the fridge broke (wasted $50) - they couldn't even be bothered to have a bloody sign up after this unfortunate accident to warn others about not using it.
They have a wonderful collection of mugs but no cups. I guess it's a bit old fashioned to use cups anyway?
When ever you opened the fridge or cupboard it would have this wonderful smell of mould.
I had an allergic reaction and needed cream, they had no idea where the first aid kit was or how to use it. the lady said, quote, "just looks like you got stung or bitten by a fair bit of jelly fish, you will be fine." Pretty sure it's a legal requirement to have a first aid kit.
the place had "character", the seats actually were half broken and were pealing off and sticking to your body. The beds definitely helped me wake up at a good time considering they were highly uncomfortable and the room not to mention was bloody hot.
The place smelt horrible, the people were smoking god knows what at night time (the people that were suppose to be looking after the place didn't do anything about it)
The only good thing about the place was the showers and I'd even give them two stars out of five.
if you like the lovely smell of mould, the horrible service and food that is off, this is your kind of wonderful get-away!! I do not recommend staying there unless you are highly desperate/need a place to stay at. Not even worth a star to be honest, but apparently I have to.
