    Not Happy !!!!

    Very Average ! It began with getting a call, a week before my stay, to change my booking from a double bed to a single bed (bunks). This was because I was by myself and a couple wanted the double bed. I said no. Arrived at the premises to be greeted by a video screen at the check in counter. Personal touch, I think not. Enter to find a very austere looking room. The beds mattress was very average, T.V. had no remote and there was food scraps on the floor. Yes, I know it is a Backpackers and not the Ritz but you can still cover the basics !!!

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Absence of reception staff and printed information about how to book in/check out/get help, left me confused when I arrived until an off-duty employee (?) turned back when he saw me outside, wondering what on earth I should do (because no-one answered either of the phone numbers provided). He gave much-needed assistance initially, otherwise I would have been very worried. Place is basic but quite clean - which is all I needed for a brief overnight stay. Couldn't get the television in the room to work, and (again), nothing printed in the way of information/instructions to guide me, let alone a 'real person' to ask about it. I'd stay there again, but only because I finally know how things work there now - except for checking out woth no staff.
