  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Fantastic hostel

    It’s a hostel, not a hotel. Once you get past that expectation - it’s a great place to stay, especially if you’re flying out early in the morning. A breakfast pack will be provided for anyone leaving before 7am. The breakfasts here are fantastic. The room has great air conditioning. I have stayed here twice now and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again!

    Great value and location.

    Excellent value. Everywhere was spotless. The free breakfast had a very good choice and even had lactose free and soya milk. Really close to the airport. I would stay there again.

    Mosquito Heaven

    Room was mosquito infected, we managed to kill around 20 during the night but it did not stop our children getting several nasty bites and we hardly slept because of it. The only point of coming to this place was to get some sleep between flights! Clearly there is a problem and wouldn't cost much to fix on a daily basis.

    Clan and tidy room but no luxury here ;)

    The room was basic not luxurious, but it was clean and tidy and that's what is imporrant. The hotel is only 3km from the airport. Overall it was a reasonable experience. Good for anyone stopping over before a flight. Receprionist could have been more friendly. Apart feom that, my stay was okay.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Not good!

    Check in took way too long. They could not find our booking. There was a lot of noise in the corridor until 3-4 o’clock. The floors did not look clean. There were only 2 towels for 5 guests.
