    The bed had clean sheets, but was extremely uncomfortable and the whole place smelt old and dirty, worst place we have ever stayed and would definately not recommend

    Not enough number of shared toilets for all rooms at the block. There were no soap or shampoo given by motel. No worth for the money paid for the room.

    Spacious communal kitchens available near rooms and are well equiped with gas stove, pots, plates and cutleries. Fridge well labelled for storage by different room. Could upgrade microwave though.

    The check in was unfriendly - the staff were busy and stressed. Our booking was not what was booked and the girl didn't want to know about it. Didn't help I had left the refernece number at home - not that that should have mattered, computers have all details now. Our room was a twin with a shared bathroom.

    Our room didn't have a ladder for the bunk bed and no power points. Besides that it was a nice experience.

    In a good location. Clean. In regards to comfort, it was a hot during our stay (summer) and there was no airconditioning available. Opened windows helped a little bit. With the price range of the rooms, airconditioning should have been included.

    Good stay

    The rooms were just about the eight size and got everything we need - beds, desk, wardrobe, tv and ensuite toilet. The public was well equipped so we had no problem cooking breakfast or dinner. The place is about 10-15 mins from the town centre so it is a convenient location.

    Not your traditional Backpackers Hostel, cabin/lodge style (less people sharing common rooms/facilities) for the same price as a typical Backpackers which is great!

    Wouldn't stay again

    Didn't care for the service. Busy hostel where no one follows the rules.

    Bed was comfortable. Wifi was slow. Parking and location difficult. Don't mind sharing facilities but the other couple had the heating turned up ridiculously high and the kitchen was a pigsty when I arrived. Also their belongings were all over the common areas.
