Peggy Lucas

25 September 2008 Peggy would recommend this property

Liked: Clean beds and clean rooms. Some comments suggest that the rooms are too small, but they have the 12 bed dorms set up nicely, with divider boards between the beds, that creates nice privacy and the feeling of more space. There are also lockable storage units in the rooms, which is great. They have a luggage room where you can store extra bags, or your stuff before you check in. I left 3 bags there for a week and nothing was stolen!

Disliked: Peggy left no negative feedback.
