Negative Reviews

Shared facilities with strangers

Multiple guests were disappointed that the bathroom and kitchen were shared with the neighbouring room. Many guests did not realize that this would be the case and believed that they were getting a room with private facilities and, therefore, were disappointed.

Have to pay for Wi-Fi

Many guests were upset about having to pay for Wi-Fi at this property. These guests believe that the property should provide free internet access, as most other places in the world currently do.

Not always cleaned before arrival

There have been complaints about the rooms and bathrooms not being cleaned prior to guests' arrivals. Guests have found items that have been left behind by other guests and the bathrooms often look like they haven't been cleaned for days.
