A group of us stayed here for one night. The price was great for what a group of us wanted it for... just a place to crash before heading on a holiday the next day. It was close to everything - shops, resturants, train station, wharf etc. Little did we know that you would get no sleep! The room was extreamly hot, but if you opened the windows to get fresh air it was like the party was in your room! The music coming from down the road was so loud, there were people on the streets yelling to all hours of the morning! The garbage truck and the street sweeper are used as a wake up call, thats if you even got to sleep in the first place! It was constant! If you want a good nights sleep ... do not stay here as sleep is not what you will get! You would be better off partying all night and not bothering with accomodation! As for the shared toilets and showers, they were unbearable! Disgusting comes to mind. There was trash everywhere, the bathroom and toilets looked like they hadnt been cleaned for years! And at times i felt unsafe... guys lurking on the streets drunk. Next time i will be spending the money and staying somewhere else.
