Negative Reviews

Dodgy neighbourhood

According to reviews, the area surrounding the guest house does not make guests feel very safe, especially if they are walking around rather than driving. It is reported that it is an area where people hang out in the street smoking and drinking. They call ahead when returning to the guesthouse at night to ensure someone is waiting to let them in.
