Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
It was terribly dirty, I was bitten by a spider in bed, the private room was like a cell, no aircon just a rusty fan. Noisy, I was woken up to five times each night by cars, people, music and more. Never again.

Essentially this is just a backpackers lodge which has appeal to that market. As such it was an interesting experience to stay there but only for a short stay.
