Negative Reviews

Need to arrive early for breakfast

Although guests appreciate the free breakfast, they do tend to advise that you arrive early on rather than leaving it until later on. If you do the latter, it seems likely that you won't find all that much food is left. It appears very much a case of first come first served (although you'll do your own serving!).

Limited free Wi-Fi available

Wi-Fi here is free but you'll only be able to use a certain amount of data each day. This may present a problem for heavy Internet users.

May find beds uncomfortable

Guests have generally found the rooms and dorms here are clean with a fairly decent selection of amenities. However, the beds may prove disappointing. Guests have tended to find they are of a poor standard and rather uncomfortable.
