I don't used kitchen
I was only here for one night so I can’t say too much. The staff were lively and all the facilities were good and clean. Would gladly have stayed longer
The room and bathroom were clean and the bed was ok.
The kitchen was ok but..there were a few younger backpackers who didn't tidy up giving it an unclean feel to it and not good for anyone else to use.
Clean and comfortable little place . Far enough away from the city centre to be quiet and peaceful but close enough to be able to walk to sights and shuttle buses etc .
Nothing . Everything was great .
Lovely staff and brilliant location
