“Worst Bed Ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Located above a 24 hour convenient store, this hotel offers the basic amenities and even offers an attached bathroom but is totally undone by the utterly wretched quality of the mattresses. It feels like you're sleeping on a bag of nails with springs jutting into flesh in every position you assume. On top of that, and you, are a pair of old tiny ratty blankets. Add on a touch pf late night traffic and other loud patrons and you have a recipe for a terrible nights sleep.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

The room is really tiny and many have no "real" windows; the sheets were not clean and the bathroom was disgusting (plus the fact that you shower over the toilet in a tiny space). The mattress was the worse with springs going into your back. The staff was not friendly and it was quite noisy. No top sheet.
I would suggest that you walk up and down that street full of backpacker places and find something else for a bettre price...we did!!
Wifi did work though!...but you sit on your bed doing emails as there is no space anywhere, certainly not downstairs (since it is a 24h mini supermarket).

Room Tip: Do not choose by the street as that street is very noisy, everywhere you go for that matter, try to...
