Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful.

Disliked: The bed was a bit uncomfortable and it was a little expensive at $260 for 4 nights in a private room. I pay less than that to live in a house weekly and have your own room. The door to the units i was in didnt lock properly and i had trouble some of the other backpackers banging on bedroom doors.
