Abandoned place

Good location
Could stay one whole day because of the cleaning conditions, including many cockroaches. I'm only writing this so they can think about the travelers comfort.

Knock it down!
Yes it's cheap. But I have stayed in many cheap places all over the world! Yes it's rated it's self as low but there is still a minimum standard and It way below. On entering you can smell the dirt as you walk through the door! The carpet and walls have years of grime! The toilets and taps are constantly keeping resulting in'floods' so wet carpets along the corners just adding to the smell! The kitchen was extremely filthy, yes free toast and tea given except there were cockroaches walking over this free food! The bedrooms them selves are also dirty and well worn. The paint and plaster is chipping off and all furnishing are coming away from the walls. 'Do not use' signs feature heavily as things are broken. Posters state a renovation is due to take place put they have been up for a long time! Lots of strange people staying here, and to top it of as we left there were empty bottles and used syringes on the entrance steps!!

Terrible hostel
Worst hostel ever, dirty and smelly room and staffs with appalling attitude. Totally not worth the money.

Allowed early check in
DO NOT STAY HERE!!! Absolutely disgusting. Reception stank of god knows what, the door to the dorm did not shut properly (did not need a key to enter just needed to push on the door so anyone could get in), window screens were slashed so bugs filled the room, massive stain on the floor of the dorm that looks like someone was assaulted and huge holes in all of the walls. The bathroom was flooded and grotty and I even witnessed a really uncomfortable moment of a staff member being chastised by management. When advised I was checking out as not happy was told simply I would receive no refund. We did not expect much considering the cost and star rating but this is not accomodation anyone should be paying for. You couldn't even pay me to stay here.

It's my dream room!

nice staff, good security, clean bed
This hotel has good location and close to woolworth glocery shop which sell cheap and nice food. Staff are verrrry nice! But facility is too old and needs renovation. Kitchen was so dirty so we did not use the kitchen. Last night it was rainy, cats and dogs in sky, we found that the roof leaks rain. If you are young and poor traveler It can be good experiences.
