Customer review

09 May 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Things were very clean, staff friendly and helpful. It might take a bit longer than 10 minutes to walk there from the train station (as described by the hostel on the website), but still it was very well located and most of the attractions were within walking distance. Playhouse's super near.

Customer review

05 April 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was clean and safe, but nothing more. It was very sterile and no effort made to make it cosy. Still, if all you want is a place to sleep and you don't want to spend a lot of time there, this is a decent place.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
