    Great location (e.g. near to Cuba Mall). Inexpensive to stay. Our family room with en suite seemed large and appeared clean. Its kitchenette was supplied with pots, etc. Good TV. Good shower. We could leave a window open without a noise issue. But occasionally we could hear the toilet next door. There was a noticeable smell (carpet?) in the corridors (etc) masked by a sprayed scent. Can feel "enclosed" in the corridors and narrow stairway. Make sure you know the emergency exit points. Tourists share space with longer term residents.

    Entrance and reception area leave a bit to be desired, but the room was clean and comfortable and more spacious than we expected

    Interesting place with a unique smell! For the price it was good and would probably stay again. Great location. Needs repair and a good scrubbing!

    When I booked I was not told that you had to book a car park so when we arrived we had to park 500m down the road in a paid car parking building. The room was very small and the bunk bed creaked every time one of us moved. There was only one working bathroom for the entire floor and I had to pay a key bond upon arrival which I also was not told about when I booked via Expedia

    It was close to the ferry which is why I booked it. It has definitely been affected by COvid restrictions which means it is understaffed. It’s definitely an old building.

    Not for a family

    I feel that the inside of the building could be maintained better. Wall paper are pealing and it looks old and not maintained. I expected more. It is not a place where I would recommend a family to stay, it caters more for young single people and backpackers. Parking on site is expensive.

    Wasn't much, but was good pricing for what I got it at. Close to a lot of places and a nice walk to downtown

    t was when the coronavirus pandemic was ramping up so I don't think this stay was necessarily representative. The building is in terrible condition but I have stayed here before and I would again.
