The room really needed repair, almost everything was broken. No lock on toilet, toilet seat broken, no curtains, traffic noise and people walking front of the window all night. Location is good, and sheets were clean, but it really could be better if the owners just fixed some little things and put up curtains and better isolation for window. It... More

Just aweful. We walked in looked around and left to find somewhere else. The no refunds sign should have been a red flag. It was dirty, smelled like smoke and BO. People were sleeping on the cots in the middle of the day. The bathrooms didn't have a door.

Looked OK on Booking.com and obviously we weren't expecting four star for the money. But this place under-delivered on even our lowest expectations. * Wi-Fi non-existent in the rooms, need to go down to the lobby to use it * Filthy bathroom * No towels - the guy at reception told me I should go to their other hotel down...

This place is a shocker! Booked a private double with en suite. No wifi in the rooms was the least of my worries. The place is filthy: dirty sheets, no towels available at all, window did not close, hairs in the shower and worst of all there was a number 2 left in the loo!!!!! Staff didn't care, we had... More

Stayed here for 2 nights over a busy weekend. We were not expecting much as the previous reviews are all quite bad. We stayed in a triple room down stairs with private bathroom and it was fine. Towels were provided, shower was hot and beds weren't too bad. Would stay here again.

This is the worst place I've ever stayed in, and I have stayed in some shockers. I can't speak for the private rooms (although based on our enquiries and the other rooms I would guess they are grossly overpriced for the quality) but in terms of the 10 person mixed dorm, every review on tripadvisor is spot on. We had... More

We booked 8beds in an 8dorm, when we arrived we've been told that there was a confusion and they will give us a 6dorm and 2 of us will go in an 8dorm. When I said to the reception personel that it is not what we had booked she answered to me that they can't guaranty on booking that everybody... More
