  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

It did not feel like it was a hostel, rooms looked very nice, amenties were clean (washroom, shower). Under couch could use some cleaning as there was a lot of dust. As well, please stock some extra pillows! I asked for an extra pillow and they advised i was unable to get another one as they were at full capacity. They did give me extra bed sheets to increase the height of my pillow though.
