Travelled with group
Disliked: Room comfort
週末の夜はヤバいくらいうるさいです。
かなりうるさくても寝られますが、金曜日・土曜日の周りのパブのうるささには驚きました。あれだとなかなか寝られないと思います。宿泊客もそのパブに行っていたからか、廊下で大声を出したり、夜中の2時でもだいぶうるさかったです。バックパッカーなので静かで快適な事は期待していませんが、ビックリしました。たぶん、窓側の部屋やパブに隣接している部屋だけでなく、このバックパッカーズ全ての部屋がうるさく感じていたと思います。バックパッカーズに泊まっているのですから文句はないです。 スタッフはとても親切で気を使ってくれ、気持ち良く滞在する事ができました。バックパッカーズの中ではかなり良い方だと思います。
