good location, awful staff

location, price and location
Staff are awful they seem generally surprised when you order something, like their not to sure why there exactly here, they just turn up out of habit and try their best to not work or smile. dont even think about requesting new music in the playlist. small talk is out of the question, and the two chefs that make a combined total of one pizza a day is systematic of a place where the owners have no clue of the situation at their establishment. The bright side.... cheapest beer around.. where else are you going to be able to sit about and talk to some backpackers.. still your best option for budget travel here but the people are so disconnected .
