Positive Reviews

Kind and Friendly Staff

Guests found the employees to be welcoming and eager to accommodate them. Because of those attitude traits, guests frequently mentioned that the service from staff was one of the best things about their stays.

Good for Guests on a Tight Budget

If you're looking for a place to stay and don't want to spend a lot of money, this could be the property for you. Many guests chose it because they were on very limited budgets and wanted to spend the majority of their money on sightseeing.

A Convenient Location

Guests remarked that they could walk from their accommodations to town centre attractions in a very short time. Many said they chose to get around on foot and found that was a feasible choice because the distance involved was not too great.

Negative Reviews

Poor Soundproofing

Guests warned that they could often hear nearby occupants when staying here. One of the main issues guests brought up is the fact that the doors naturally don't close very softly. As a result, feedback indicated you may be bothered by the sounds of slamming doors when trying to slumber.

The Rooms Get Very Stuffy

Guests complained that the rooms do not get good air circulation, in large part because the windows only open a bit due to fire code regulations. Although you can request a fan, guests said their rooms remained stuffy even with the increased air circulation caused by fans.

The Accommodations Are Too Basic

Guests felt the accommodations were too sparse because they do not offer many of the things provided by conventional hotels. For example, guests said they did not like having to either bring their own towels or purchase them upon arrival, and would have loved if the rooms included breakfast.
