  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The room was dirty. The power outlets & aircon were damaged. The room smelled, had about 12 cockroach bates in it and somehow we had to kill 6 cockroaches during our 5 night stay.

    It’s basically a halfway house for people who can’t afford anywhere else. The carpet in the rooms absolutely reeks and goes through everything. Some clothes had to be washed two times to remove the smell. This is a place which attracts the sort of you would imagine, given it’s the absolute cheapest you can find. Nothing from this place could be recommended.

    I only stayed there for a night. Mostly young backpackers, loud and inconsiderate. I checked in at night around after 10 and stayed in a 6 bed drom, everyone talking on their phone past 12, lights off at 2. Didn’t get much sleep. Bathroom door was damaged,couldn’t lock properly. Never experienced this. Not coming back again but it was cheap.
