Negative Reviews

Sharing the bathroom

A majority of the accommodations do not have an en-suite bathroom meaning you will have to use the shared facilities. Travellers point out that not only is this a little annoying if you prefer privacy, but the bathrooms are not well maintained and have a few issues you might notice.

It gets noisy

The walls at the property aren't soundproofed and visitors state that noise from the rooms next to yours can be heard if your neighbours happen to be talking loudly or have their TV turned up.

Bad smell puts a damper on things

Guests report that the rooms and hallways of the property have a bit of a funky smell that comes from the carpets, which can get wet. The odour isn't overpowering but there is a chance you will notice it during your stay.
