    Staff are very helpful and friendly. Good location to get around. Room was very clean and tidy

    Some random guy opened my room door ajar one morning about 6am and poked his head in for a second before closing it again. Can be noisy if you want to have an early night as the gathering area next to the kitchen is a party area but it is closed by midnight which is good. It is a backpackers though so is expected

    Clean, big kitchen.

    Only the noise that the people does during the week but it's normal we guess it's not the owner fault. Wi-Fi to slow
