The Bunkhouse is one of the many places in Dawson whose owners live in Germany. The two front desk managers in 2010 (Paul and Heidi) ran the place, and were absolutely useless for the most part. I saw paper towel in the washrooms for about 3 days of the whole month, even after asking both Heidi and Paul to replace it. The toilets, sinks, and showers were almost never cleaned (unless there was a new complementary band-aid thrown in one of the showers each morning), and any time you asked for something or if something needed to be cleaned, the managers were "busy". For 500 a month, 60-80 a night, or 200-300 a week, you could do a lot better. This place would be amazing if the managers cared about it at all, and if the owners fixed it up with even a single communal kitchen area (there's nothing there to cook with at all) and some wi-fi. It's too bad it's run the way it is...maybe it will improve in the future.
