Paid Wi-Fi only

Guests aren't exactly pleased with having to pay to use the Wi-Fi provided at this backpackers, especially in this day and age. In guests' opinion, Wi-Fi is considered a basic facility, and should be included in the rate of the room.

Noisy from time to time

The noise levels experienced in the rooms are often too loud according to reviews. Guests are able to easily hear one another through the thin walls. This is a problem for guests wanting to sleep early.
