1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Don't go here!
Only one working toilet and shower for the whole place, diarrhea splashed on the toilet wall beside the toilet. Bed itchy. Three people to two beds in a bunk formation. No quiet to sleep, one room mate kept me awake with her loud obnoxious talking into well past 1:45am. Nothing to do on site. I had to leave after 2 nights out of the paid 4 which they insisted be paid in advance and then did not provide a receipt for paying nor a refund for having to leave. Worst experience I have ever had. Don't be sucked in.
