Cleanliness. I know it&#39;s a backpacker but that shouldn&#39;t take away the cleanliness. Window sill&#47;runners in our room looked like they had NEVER been cleaned.

Kitchen area needs to be cleaned. The utensils need to be replaced by quality, they are cheap so get bad easily. The cleaners do a good job however the property needs deep cleaning regularly.
