The property itself was fun , clean and overall friendly vibe. The bathrooms were surprisingly very clean considering how many people were to 2 toilets and 2 showers. The bedroom i booked had 6 bunks and an aircon ( though I couldn’t feel it at all) neither could the others in the room I suppose because they left the windows open at night for cool air. The room was really hot . I was luckily able to get 6 hours sleep but by 4:45 when the sun was beaming through the room again I was awake . Too hot . Comfortable bunk considering
