      Conform to YHA standards.

      The mosquitos in the room by night because of the light next door was the only problem.

      Price was good enough for the reason and duration of my stay. very happy

    • Couple
      7.0

      It was clean, with friendly staff and set in a great location.

      The walls are pretty thin, like a prefab building so noise travells through easily and there is little or no insulation so it can be quite cold.

      The rooms and facilities were clean and tidy. the staff were very efficient.

      The W.I.F.I reception was hopeless and we couldn't connect with our laptop. A Queen size bed would have been better for us but we realize that accommodation was very busy during that weekend.
