What a shame, the rooms and woodwork of the place was what attracted me from their site and its nice, but this is a never again place for us.

The front entrance looks like a mechanic garage or tyre place with vehicles (and a truck) parked under the large awning masking the beauty of the entrance further back. Having walked next door, only a side wards glance showed us we’d missed it. Reception beautiful but unattended. The cigarette butts strewn in front of the beautiful wooden steps and entrance were not a good l look. A person from across the street (later we think this is the housekeeper) came across after a number of minutes and tried to find our booking, then tried to find the manager and eventually just picked a key and gave it us. Nice try, wrong room. When we eventually got sorted and got to room it was beautiful, if not a little on the dirty side. We’d booked a VIP room with refrigerator and balcony. Things started going bad when we flushed the toilet the first time. A well established ant nest was disturbed. Given it was hidden this wasn’t really my issue, the issue was the management response. Initially nothing. Floor and walls now covered with angry ants. A couple of hours later they brought in a can of spray and kill a lot and wet everything down I assume to clear them away. We returned to the smell (again I’d have done the same thing), the unlocked door exposing all our items was not acceptable, nor was the mess, now dead ants everywhere and those still alive invading the rest of the room. Two attempts by me to clean them away and in disparation we accepted a smaller room next door. No refund, no apology, no one at reception in the morning. Big service fail. The smaller room next door, the toilet blocked. Internet access points everywhere but ineffective to no throughput, so a low level of internet could be achieved by sitting in the front entrance.

Sorry, we are a strong no and this is I think a fair but negative review - my first on the “no, don’t stay here” list

It took the staff 4 attempts,before they found a room that had clean sheets. I have a feeling the staff sleeps and showers in the rooms and then they just check people in when someone turns up. 2 rooms stank of dump and had wildlife in them. Stay away if you can

Hot water doesn’t work. Cobwebs that could catch a big bird in the bathroom. Door handle fell off so we were locked out of our room. Duvet doesn’t get washed, only “aired “ and theres no top sheet figure it out for yourself!

Ein relativ großes und gut aussehendes Hostel. Viele Treppen und Holzverkleidung überall. Auf den ersten Blick auch sauber aber nur auf den ersten Blick. Spinnweben hier und da und auch das ein oder andere Ungeziefer. In zwei verschiedenen Zimmern lief das Wasser aus den Waschbecken nicht ab und der Rezeptionist ist zwar sehr freundlich, kann aber kaum ein Wort englisch. Haben wir schon besser gesehen.
