The overall stay was awesome and the staff is very welcoming. The only thing i did not like was the room from the bunk-beds, blankets, no fridge and no microwave in the room. But the overall experience was good.

The general look and maintenance of the property is fairly well however a small barea fridge in the room will do for guests to store their soft drinks, a sign to advice other guests including staff members to lower their voices when communicating will do,a pull or push sign at the door will also come in handy.

Always make your customer's happy when visiting your place so they will come again and again and again.Try to have mini bar fridge in houses so the clients/visitor's will put their drinks for when they are thirsty.

Richards Bay, South Africa1 contribution
I enjoyed the room the bus station was not much of an issue in terms of location. Really enjoyed my stay. But really wish for Better security for guest who are inconsiderate, the walls are very thin and noise travel fast especially outside and the corridors. Since it was or is peak season had issues of so much noise drinking outside the entrance and some camping In the parking lot with alcohol and making so much noise the one security guard is locked up in the foyer cause it seems like its closed at a certain time, meaning he doesn't check corridors of guest making noise inside or outside. But our room I enjoy seeing white sheets and they where always clean for the whole 3 night stay. The TV channels it would be nice for proper options but I can't complain cause I was out for most of the day just some channels had no sound. Didn't enjoy the paying for parking when there isn't much of safe security felt like I was gambling on parking my car there think that's why there were doggy people and guests doing as they please outside & near people's parked cars.

I booked for a night's stay and I must say I am satisfied with the place. It's close proximity to the bus terminals meant there is noise but also offers easy access to all kinds of transportation. The staff was excellent, they even kept our luggage as we arrived hours before check in and our departure was also way after check out. The room was spotless, I expected it to smell as it was a smoking room but I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't.

I was not happy with the parking they make you pay for an open parking where there's no shelter and you pay for the car as well as the trailer aside. Why do we pay to people standing at the gate but I booked the hotel.
