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
Drunk guests, constant small of alcohol, vomit on the ground, very noisy downstairs at night
Bad organization, too much noice, not so clean
Location and facilies, the atrium space
Mostly people=guests there. Very barbarric. Screaming and drinking all night. Making the bathrooms very dirty.
