Negative Reviews

Hot rooms with no air conditioning

The property is not equipped with air conditioning and guests reported that the rooms can become uncomfortably hot especially during the summer months. While portable fans are supplied, they are not always sufficient to cool down the rooms.

Hit and miss housekeeping service

Housekeeping attend the rooms and common areas daily, however extra care is needed to maintain a high standard of cleanliness especially during the high season. Guests reported that at times both the floor and bathrooms were found to be dirty.

Small communal kitchen

Guests reported that the communal kitchen is small and ill equipped to comfortably accommodate the number of guests staying at the hostel.
