The property is old and looks like its not well maintained. The bottom of the bunk bed is sunked in the middle and very noisy when you move a little bit.

Pros: renovated toilets and sinks, lots of washrooms, towels provided, well-stocked kitchen, large dining area Cons: very creaky bunk bed, shower is not a continuous stream of water, shower water pools instantly, need more bowls in the kitchen, slippery stairs

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Room was clean and warmed quickly, stayed 2 nights in end of December. I booked a private room, was a very basic room (as expected for the price, which I didn't mind), size of a closet. Smaller than a twin bed. If your looking to save money and just need a place to sleep, this is the place. You can hear people in the hallway, I'm a heavy sleeper so it didnt bother me. Only stayed there to sleep since I was out exploring the beautiful area.

A great inexpensive overnight stay.
Super nice reception, very pleasant! Room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Stayed in a two twin bed room. Showers, bathrooms on main floor have all been remodeled. Pleasantly surprised about the stay, more than I expected for the price. We also cooked dinner in the well-stocked guest kitchen.
