Nice budget option! Good security on the dorm door! Private room was nice but slightly loud as the sound from the next door bar boom into the room! Parking on site which was convenient! 24hr reception which made it good to check in late! Pool upstairs & rooftop area was great!

I gave this place a poor rating, as I arrived there at 1 am and all I wanted after a long trip was some sleep, but there was partying noise till 6am in the morning, the shared toilets are also very dirty and men use the female toilets which is not very reassuring. The don't allow you to turn of the air conditioners which are also old and very loud, and you can hear footsteps and people talking in isle ways, they need better noise control. Fridges and kitchens could also be cleaner.
