Positive Reviews

It’s affordable

Guests choose this accommodation mainly for its low rates and convenient location. Travellers would be hard pressed to find alternative accommodation in the same price band. Despite being budget accommodation, guests actually note that the beds are surprisingly comfortable.

Staff are nice

Whatever guests think of the hotel, their impression of the personnel is often quite positive. They are found to be relatively friendly and do as much as they can to be of service.

Clean and spacious rooms

Many guests comment that the rooms are spacious, the linens are fresh, and there is ample space for luggage and wardrobe storage. Others add that the bathroom floors are spotless, and there is a pleasant fragrance in the room.

Negative Reviews

Sketchy environment

Guests do not feel very safe in this neighbourhood, which looks like a no-go zone. There is a strip club right next door and a lot of shady characters loitering outside and inside the hotel. Many travellers are convinced that there is prolific drug dealing going on in the area, with some even claiming they have been offered drugs and that the place smells of marijuana. Guests also reckon that prostitution is rife in the neighbourhood, as is aggressive behaviour, including fights, and even attempted break ins.

Cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired

The hotel is far from being in a pristine condition. Guests say that the ceilings and carpets are stained, as well as the bedsheets. Litter is to be found everywhere, under the beds and in the hallways, as well as other items, including condoms, underwear and cigarette ends. The place is also a haven for bugs and cockroaches, reviews indicate.

Broken lift

With the hotel’s lift often said to be out of order, guests are not happy to have to climb four flights of stairs, often poorly lit or not at all, to access their rooms.
