Liked: right in town on main street

Disliked: the showers in the female sanctuary were scalding hot and no way to adjust the temperature, when reception were told they didn't seem all that bothered by it or to care. it was too hot very dangerous

Liked: The room was clean and warm.

Disliked: The kitchen was the worst i've seen. Most of the cooking pots and pans were missing handles. There was also a terrible smell in the kitchen it was just generally very grubby in there! I avoided it as much as i could.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Liked: Good location. The staff were fairly helpful too.

Disliked: It's incredibly noisy, so if you're not interested in partying, do not stay here. The rooms were very basic and incredibly dingey, and ours stank like a locker room. It seemed as though thwy were cutting corners at every opportunity: the bunks were the uncomfiest I've ever experienced at a backpackers, the room had just three plug sockets for eight people, there end the showers hardly got warm and andlasted circa 30 seconds. I wouldn't stay here again unless I was pretty desperate.
