“Exactly what you pay for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Pretty cheap accomodation, and as a result don't expect too much.

Dorm rooms pretty small, bottom bunks very uncomfortable (can feel each individual metal slat when you are sleeping).

Rooms downstairs get really noisy - particularly if you are close to the kitchen (be prepared to be awake all night..)

About a 15 minute walk from GasLamp.

Hotel staff are alright - the English guy is pretty nice - everyone else lacks a bit in personality/enthusiasm..

Overall, you get what you pay for. It's good value, but only if you are prepared to slum things a bit.
