“Yes never stay here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2010

Stayed for the world cup and it was all about ripping as many people off as possible! Went to the game on an over priced shuttle and came back to find more beds squeezed in our dorm. I wouldn't feed a dog the breakfast and it's in the middle of no where. My experience may have been bad because so many stayed for the WC but there's no way I'd go back and can not see what it offers anyone other than a crap bed a cold shower, and a hole in your pocket!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2010

we travelled as a group and on arrival our beds were not ready, in fact the mattresses sat in a pile on the grass while we were told to relax by the pool which was green with algae and goodness knows what else. The place is over run with animals and the place where we were supposed to stay was dirty, this included the kitchen area and showers. I would never stay here even as a backpacker!
