    To be avoided”

    From the very first minute we Had problems here. Check in was highly problematic not solved until mid afternoon after we arrived at 10:30 in the morning. Rest of the stay much less than satisfactory. Service poor facilities poor location In rundown area and remote from Riverside. No in room security for valuables. Out of hours security guard asleep most of the time. Reluctantly I can only advise that future travelers should avoid this place at all costs

    The value was great for me. I stayed 5 nights and will stay there again. Water was hot, air con was great and the WiFi was very good in the two rooms I stayed in. Many food options in easy walking distance. The only problem for me was the noisy neighbours. The hotel is next to some loud night clubs and bars. They would stop at 12am.

    Good and bad”

    Um... lol where to start. It’s really a mixed bag. The front area is a fun lively chill spot. Although the pool is located in a bit of an exposing space (if you are comfortable taking a dip right next to people eating as others are walking by on the street then hey all good) Food is average, beer cheap, the areas to get to your room are super dumpy and I was unfortunately on the top level which was a serious workout going up and down the stairs. Garbage and and random objects all over. The room is basic, but no shampoo or soap. WiFi is good enough. Staff... most staff were really nice and always had a smile and others a bit cold. Overall not bad not great lol

    Glad we stayed here! For the price? Yaaaaz! I was with my mom and the room we were supposed to be was on 4th floor. My mom as you know is kind of aged can’t do many stairs. So we asked the owner if there’s a available room on a lower level. Not just we were able to get the room on a 2nd floor we were upgraded to a deluxe room too! Room for 3, with fridge, kettle, tv! And a bigger space! Thank you!

    The bed was okay but a little hard, they were at least clean. The bathroom was not clean, there was clumps of black hair above the cupboard and in the drains, tooth paste in the sink, a cigarette butt in the shower and an open tooth brush and comb. The guy at the reception was very helpful in booking onwards travel. The food at the restaurant was good and well priced.

    Our room was light, relatively spacious, and the bathroom had hot water. The hostel was also in a good location. However, our room was pretty filthy and had clearly not been hoovered after the last guests - there were dirty toothbrushes left behind and hairs on the floor. There were also a lot of ants around and over the bedside table. Some staff were rude. Do not expect to be able to use the pool, which is situated in the lobby right by the road. The walls are thin and although we were on the sixth floor the karaoke at the bar next door sounded like it was right outside our window.

    Certainly did not meet basic expectations”

    Booked a double bedroom. Given twin beds. Not off to a good start. Apparently no other rooms available. 2 bottles of water in the room, but not free and was not advised. Very strange not to have free water. Had a kettle in the room, but no cups or coffee, tea, sugar. Bathroom was NOT clean, still had previous guests toothbrush and used soap and long hairs on the floor and pieces of wood from the broken bathroom door. Water smelt strange when taking a shower. Bed linen was definitely not clean. No fresh smell and stains from previous guests. Bed was hard and when moving in the bed it made loud noises. If you sleep early you can not do here as it is close to bars. The only positive was the friendly happy guy at check out. Would I stay here again? No, as many other better choices closer to the river or this same area.

    Very good”

    staff was very nice, great Mochito drinks, good location, ordinary breakfast, however the pictures show a bit different place than it actually is..very small room for 4 people, not such a tidy one as in the pictures

    A EVITER A TOU! PRIX”

    Très sale, très bruyant, peu de fournitures (même les serviettes de bain étaient en nombre insuffisant et souvent sales). Piscine (petit bassin) qui semble tout le temps sale! Même pour un prix aussi réduit, n'y allez pas, cela ne vaut même pas ce tarif!
