2/10 Poor

Noisy, old and the worst sleep ever.
The single bed was so lumpy, sagged and uncomfortable, that I eneded putting the mattress on the floor. You should not charge for a bed that is this bad. I have stayed at many ALH venues and this was by far the noisiest and most uncomfortable bed in SA!
