Guest Comments

The owner needs to ensure ammenities work- like toilets and hot water, the electricity supply is not over-loaded, the beds do not contain bed-bugs, and the mattresses are softer. The rooms with bunk-beds should also be cleaned and not smell. General maintenance such as door hinges, and the sofas are cracking and damaged in the common room and should be replaced.
The fire place could be turned into one to make the place more homely. Pillows are deflated and terrible for posture and combined with the bed lead to a terrible night's sleep even when one double's it up.
The store room is small and overflowing with items. It is very easy to lose ones belongings.
The only consolation is the staff who try to console the residents to no avail.


Love the chilled environment and the people are so helpful.

I was not happy with the fact that there's no cups even to make yourself a coffee/tea, no porridge bowls, the beds at the dorms makes a sound everytime one make's a turn and the bed moves as if someone is going to fall, as a result I let the kids to sleep on the lower beds.

If we should have brought our cups/bowls they should mention that.


It was a harrowing experience.I believed I would be staying in a decent place, with basic decencies like clean carpets and linen, net curtain, shower door and hot water. What I found was the opposite and I consequently moved out the next day as besides these issues, I did not feel safe as I had strangers constantly knocking on my door the whole night, during my stay.
