The bathrooms were covered in mold. The shower was either scathing hot or ice cold, nothing in between. Staff was ok but it didn’t seem like any of them had a firm grasp on their job. All the furniture was worn down, my bunk didn’t even have a light our outlet like everyone else’s in the room.
I would of like the option of reserving a top or bottom bunk bed, as one was reserved but I don’t remember be given this option. Additionally I wish I had been made more aware of the ID requirements as there was almost a issue as I forgot my passport and only have my bank card for ID.
Apart from that a lovely place that I am planning on visiting again
