4/10 Fair

The property is quite well located, being only 10 minutes walk from the beach and shopping/ The Receptionist was bright, pleasant and helpful. The accommodation (double bed room) was not impressively decorated, and one broken window, had been boarded over. The Booked Continental Breakfast did not exist. The structure of the adjacent rooms looked extremely tatty and curtains opposite rooms were grimy and paintwork in extremely poor condition. The room was very cold, with no form of heating ... I literally slept in bed, with my clothes on ...

Single female placed in a 4 bed dorm with men! when i asked to move from this scary situation, the receptionist complained that it was my fault that had occurred, as i had not clicked at booking site that i wanted gender specific. Thing is, no such choice was presented that i could see on the website. I was then moved to a dorm on 10 women. 1 toilet and one roll of toilet paper for all!!!!!!!
