  • Extremely loud at night with the windows facing a busy street and a tramway.. either very hot in the room, or very loud with windows open. Smelly rooms. Slept very poorly. No vent in the bathroom. Staff not friendly and made zero effort to explain the confusing price difference with the Hostels.com website. Location is okay and free Parking is nice but there isn't nearly enough stalls for the motel.

  • The first room we were allocated was revolting, looked like a storage room and it stank of stale tobacco smoke. We asked for another room and got one which was far better but still was barely the minimum standard you'd expect. Another guest at the time we checked in was appalled too. Grotty furniture, dim bathroom, fan full of dust, green polyester sheets that were badly pilled, AND it's not a hostel at all, budget motel would be more accurate. Given the price, the place is a shocker.

  • Terrible service, they were rude, unimformative, quick to frustration and quick to charge you extra. Seems to be a culture difference between the staff and the guests where the staff are openly rude to the guest and don't seem to have a problem with it. The facility has reports and photos of bed bugs online, the parking garage has limited spaces which they don't monitor. Boyfriend and I had to spend over 30 minutes looking for parking after a 12 hour drive. Not cool.

  • You had better change your website to explain why guests under 30 are not allowed to stay. You kept my security deposit after I had already completed the booking and I had to find another hotel at which to stay. Highway robbery.
