"The beds were nice and clean and the bathrooms had key card access. Everything required keys and there were luggage lockers right in the room! I especially liked they had charging ports inside the lockers."

Customer review

23 February 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: You get what you pay for, a bed.It just seems that 75% of the guests do not know how to use the sheets provided, which is in some cases quite disgusting. I hope they change the blankets/sheets from time to time...It's alright if you"re not expecting too much and just need a place to sleep. If you like to socialise go next door to Scubar not many opps in the hostel...
