Liked: The location was the only nice thing about this hostel

Disliked: It smells like vomit and body odor, the keys and codes to get in at night didn't work properly, the bathrooms looked like they hadn't been cleaned in weeks and the toilets were backed up & we weren't able to get into our room until 9 pm the day of check-in and were in no way compensated for the inconvenience.

Hi Lesley

In regards to the toilets the toilets are cleaned and thoroughly in the morning as well as through out the day when reception has a chance to get in there the fact that guests using the toilets are going to get dirty its a fact of life, In regards to the room there should have been beds for you to get into straight away, The night door codes do work if imputed correctly the codes are on all key rings.

Regards

Dallas

Liked: The beds were comfortable. There was an easy access lift for heavy baggage. Quite a good kitchen, no one stole food from me!

Disliked: The reception were a little unhelpful about maintaining security. I wanted to keep my belongings safe behind the reception desk. They let me but seemed begrudging. Not as if it was an easy thing to keep these things secure in my dorm room, when the only locker left had a broken hinge, so my padlock was useless to keep my things secure in the shared room.
