Negative Reviews

Limited Wi-Fi

A common complaint from visitors who rely on social media to stay connected with their friends and family was that the Wi-Fi was only available during normal waking hours and restricted to one common area of the property, which for some was not enough and a source of frustration.

Filthy Kitchen

Backpackers complained in their reviews that the communal kitchen was always a mess, as it was left in a pretty foul state by other guests who did not clean up after themselves.

Extra Cash Needed

The village charges a deposit for the use of bed sheets and kitchen utensil as well as the key entry card.  Previous guests warned future backpackers in their reviews to keep a little bit extra cash handy to pay these deposits on arrival.
