well bathroom, wonderful reception who can answer almost every question and solve most problems, nice brecfast and save time, a little bit far from city but just all right
The staff was wonderful and very helpful. They were always very eager to dispense great advice, book anything we'd need, and were generally great. I was surprised to see that, although the clientele was young, there really wasnt' noise after a certain hour - they were serious about making sure people in the neighborhood and hostel will be able to get some sleep. I would definitely recommend staying there, it's a great and quiet location.
I dont' really think the price justified the room we got.
Free shuttle bus from airport (if you book 2 or more night ;) ) Really clean room and bathroom. A lot of rental car company not too far from hotel.
cheap and close to where we wanted to stay
toilets and shower area was unclean. Condoms left in showers!!!!
Nothing, it was a dirty place with insects in the rooms and hallways, people were noisy until 6 am so no sleep at all
Rooms are dirty, smells bad, the kitchen is in very poor condition, people are noisy until late, there where big bugs in the room
good basic accom in a great location. Very fair value for money.
You have to pay for towels...fair enough in dorms, but in a double room would expect to get a towel...pretty minor issue :)
The man in counter did not speak English he said it was his second day he did not gave me sheets as he supposed to do it what I discoverd at midnight when other girl came to the room and told me it was her bed and explain to me how a backpacker works ,, it was my first time .... And it would be the last one .. The room was also filthy .
Location was good, staff was friendly
The room unfortunately was stinky, and people around in the corrridors were quite loud
I liked the staff, they were very nice and helpful and wanted to help. Free breakfast was nice too.
I hated the location- it was loud inside and outside every night. People would use the mic when they were drunk and everyone would be very rude at night with considering bed times (even after 12am it was loud). Our biggest regret was buying a shuttle to the airport that never showed and when we called about it, the shuttle service said they didn't know about our location and we almost missed our flight. We were told this was a very reliable service and we were left outside for almost an hour. The location though was the worst. I wouldn't recommend anyone to stay in the area because it's scary even going out alone.
the free breackfast,the staff is very helpfull,rooms and bathroom very clean
Best part is the location
No refunds and No Air Conditioning...it was easily 15 c hotter in my room than outside...spent 4 nights not sleeping because of it!
clean and tidy kitchen, free and nice breakfast, enjoyable public lounge.
bathroom lights on and off with the instablity
Friendly reception. Everything was clean and got cleaned up. Well observations.
Super clean bathrooms and great kitchen facilities!
Walking distance to major attractions. Offerred good tour assistance.
Did not follow thru with arrangements to pick us up at the airport. The place was noisy, noisy, noisy - all night long!!!
