6/10 Good

Too Many Long Term Residents
Far too many long-term residents and they are very chummy with the staff. Up yelling and screaming in the common room, calling indoors without meaningful comments from staff. I felt like we were guests in THEIR house. No secure storage in the dorms. Eva at the front desk was great with local suggestions.

Friendly staff,nice atmosphere,house work needed
Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. Unfortunately room had a small water leak and bag, clothes got wet. Walls very thin so anyone who can't handle noise would have an issue. Bed was very comfortable and pool looked great for summer.

2/10 Poor

Backpacking For party people not business stayover
Not good place to stay if you want to sleep. It’s party central ALL night long. So much for rules. Not enough bathrooms with amount of people in building. Kitchen looks like an accident waiting to happen. Small cramped and too many cooks
