    People in the kitchen opposite my room banging around then talking until 11.30 until I went out and the shut the door. People then up at 6am on a Sunday banging around. Cheap and clean but noisy thoughtless guests.

    We definitely pulled the short straw with our Standard double room. The 2 other Standard doubles next door to ours were luxurious compared to ours! They had spacious rooms. Ours was cramped with hardly enough room to even walk round the bed! Very disappointed. I know it was cheap accommodation but I feel we got a poor deal in comparison with others. Everywhere was shabby and desperately in need of a lick of paint. I wouldn't recommend this accommodation unless you were young backpackers who were happy to share a dorm with 5 others and didn't care about the surroundings! I would certainly look at other backpackers accommodation in future.

    They messed up my booking, clearly stated that it was for 4 guests. Unfortunately they only booked for one which meant that we no longer could be in the same room. We we're lucky to find alternative accommodation but when i requested a refund since it was their error they said they would need to get the manager to call me - still waiting on that call, still waiting on that refund. No issue with the actual property etc. It all looked very good and the staff were pleasant enough.
