The most expensive we've stayed in to date but also the worst, avoid.
Reception is friendly enough but the hostel building (seperate) is not looked after one bit.
Holes in walls, lights not working, locks on doors barely work, generally dirty and kitchen is beyond just needing a tidy up.
Toilets and showers are too few and dirty. The kitchen is small with not great equipment, 1 of 2 kettles doesn't work & and one toaster only so good luck if it's busy.
Used by construction workers who don't care about the place or respect travellers either so expect alarms early in the morning if you've had to arrive late at night and just need a good sleep. Also small bunk beds which are probably for children, so don't expect to be able to sit up in bottom bunk, incidentally, if you get motion sickness then these bunks are really not for you!
A good 20 mins walk at least from town and also from NakedBus stop. Few food options nearby apart from pricey bars so it'll be a Burger King or Chinese only.
We're glad we only stayed one night and could get out. Brace yourself if this is the only place left with space.
