Our booking was different from what we requested, we booked for 2 nights, 2 rooms for 8 people @ $228 ended up costing $430. Advertised for a Hotel in fact it was a Hostel. Rooms had dirt all under beds, sheets where that starched you couldnt move unless you woke up other people in room. The noise on the 1st night was so loud we could not sleep even though there were signs saying no noise after 10pm. On checkout you have to strip your own beds and either take them to reception or if before office opens strip and leave in room. Advertised with luxury bedding all you got was a pillow and sheet. Free WIFI but no password was given to utilise it. Overall very dissappointing, BUT the guests at Hostel were very friendly and helpful.
