This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Stay away!!!! Be warned this place has very unhelpful staff, not enough toilet or shower facilities, let alone the fact that every time you need to use the shower or toilet you first have to unblock the drain whilst standing in filthy used shower and toilet water, to then have a shower. It maybe cheap but spend the extra few dollars and stay anywhere else.
