2/10 Poor

They didn't work with me at all...never wrote me. Not the nicest place. Service was at it's worst.

4/10 Fair

Rooms were ok, very basic. Toilets could do with extra cleaning. The main reason I wouldn’t stay here again is because I found every single staff memeber to be rude and unhelpful. I booked two nights but only stayed one.

6/10 Good

They were really helpful and nice hosts. I needed to change a room and they made it really easy and were really kind. But toilets were seriously dirty most of the time, showers aswell.
