Place lovely people were sociable. My experience could have been better if our private room was clean. Sheets & towels were clean but ensuite had built up used soàp in shower, left over bar of soap & used shampoo.The vinyl floor was black & once the door mat was lifted u could see wat colour the vinyl should have been! Spoke to superviser a couple of times before he conceided that their cleaning techniques need addressing.I was assured our room would b scrubbed properly after we left.

We booked into a 4 bed dorm. After checking in 2 people also came, took my daughter's bed and moved her stuff, then stayed up to read aloud. Very inconsiderate! Since a man was put in our room (I'm a female with a teenage daughter) we asked to be moved to a private room and given a very nice one. If the dorm is co-ed, consideration of the age of the women should be noted. Other than this, the stay was great.
