Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
No
Dirty blankets that I didn't even sleep there or want to get into the double bed & no tv to watch that it waz not a nice room to feel comfortable

3/5 Okay

Travelled with group
Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
While the staff themselves were very friendly and well presented, the condition of the property itself was a glaring difference. Covid has not been kind to this establishment. The housekeeping could dramatically benefit from extra members, the facilities desperately require attention to correct various states of disrepair and every single toilet requires toilet brushes. Overall, if you are looking for a place that reflects the saying "You get what you pay for" in the extreme, then you will certainly find it here. Best as a short term option for travelers on a tight budget.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Just a very basic, not so clean place
Good location. That's about it, no clean or any basic confort provided. Basic backpackers with overpriced ensuite/private rooms.
