Too many people in one room
Staff was fine to talk to
Staff is great and understanding.
Locations is great, a bit hidden but in close to everything in city centre, and Waverly station. We only came back to sleep in the room for a few hours. Rabbies Tours cafe/bus stop. We only had contact with 2 staff members both spoke spanish, Eduardo and a young lady with dark hair. They were both helpful and accommodating with our luggage. Email response is also quick. Restrooms and showers were okay and clean.
The sheets of the beds and cover had stains some dark black stains and small blood stains.
Really well recieved, the staff were brilliant, friendly and helpful. Constantly suggesting good local places to go. The rooms were clean and the facilities were excellent.
The only issue was the heat, the rooms were uncomfortably warm especially at night. But that was the only problem.
