A great stay here for 3 nights, the service up front was super welcoming and very helpful for giving me locals advice, thanks Rob. Rooms were what youd expect for the price, were clean and comfy though (I had a mixed dorm). Wasnt too loud although rooms are near alleyways where the loud people tend to wander on saturday nights so beware. I didn't think it was an issue. AC in our room was soooo good for summer. Finding kitchen shelf space and fridge space was hard but it was long weekend so I assume thats why. Great location eith plenty to do, hired the bikes for $10 half day, super cheap, they are cheap bikes though but fully worth it when you ride the waterfront. Would come again.

Haven’t stayed there but the staff was nice enough to inform us of the noise upon online booking as it is located above a restaurant and a bar. It’s obviously going to be loud on New Year’s Eve. They cancelled it for at no cost. That’s really appreciated. Thank you 😊
