Service and Staff
Property condition


The double rooms in this hostel ( Hotel ) are described online as featuring a Bathroom & shower. This Bathroom & Shower is SHARED with the other private & dormitory rooms. Separately, and more seriously, with my room being at the end of a narrow 7 metre corridor, in my room I found a heavy sofa chair blocking the fire exit door, something which the staff 'happily' told me that they, and the local fire officer was happy with! Lets hope there's no fire when 'you're' there!
