Evidently, you get what you pay for. My girlfriend and I elected to stay at Camelot after enjoying a one night stay here months ago. This time, we elected to stay a couple days and enjoy some skiing in the mountains and cycling in the city. We were sadly disappointed.
Thanks to disgruntled management, our bikes were held hostage. To clarify, we had an employee lock them up for us one evening. He told us that he didn't have the code to access the facility, but an employee could help us the next day or alternatively we could call the hostel's help line 24 hours a day for assistance.
We called the help line when no employees were present. The owner of the establishment, Arthur, answered the phone and seemed awfully irritated from the start. He was irked, evidently, that he had to talk to a customer. Once I explained the predicament, he berated his employee, John, and said that the fault rested on his shoulders. He advised me to contact John and promptly hung up the phone without warning.
I did my best to contact John, to no avail. When I called Arthur again, his tone was even more hostile and he accused me of threatening him when I announced that I'd be leaving a bad tripadvisor review.
To boot, the bathrooms smell incredibly musty and moldy and remind me of the dormitory I occupied my freshman year of college.
I realize that this place is offered at bargain basement prices. That's great. Fair warning, though; Arthur, who runs this joint, fancies himself "King Arthur" and will treat you accordingly. Don't bother being a pauper in his court. Shell out a few extra dollars and stay at the Motel6.
