Looks nice from the outside and that is it. The first time Tripadvisor reviews let me down. It has absolutely no character or soul. The pillow cases were various shades of yellow and decoration in the rooms is faded. The kitchen and room had a terrible smell. The wooden tables in the kitchen have food in the grooves that looks like it had been there for a while. It is a real shame if someone took care for the people staying and spent a little time making it homely it could be great. We stayed in a ensuite room and my advice would be spend 20 bucks more and stay in a motel. We tried to get into the higher rated backpackers but they were full.
