Negative Reviews

Bathroom woes

According to guests, incurring charges in order access essential bathroom supplies is inconsiderate. There are several instances where guests have to pay in order to use the towels. Others add that basic toiletries, such as shampoo and soap, are in short supply. Lastly, it seems hot water is in short supply at this hostel, with many guests noting they have to take lukewarm showers.

Unreliable Internet access

'Undependable' is how guests describe the Wi-Fi service at this establishment. Oftentimes, the signal is weak and some areas, particularly the guest rooms, struggle to get a signal. As such, guests who access the Internet regularly find this frustrating.
