Good 6.0
I had a room on the 4th floor and it was very difficult to carry 4 suitcases all by myself because my daughtet is not strong enough to help. They should have a bell boy to.provide this service

The staff was not friendly or unfriendly, the pool pictured is right in front of the checkin desk and near the tables that people can sit at. It makes it awkward if you were to swim. The rooms were fine, small but workable. The wardrobe had 1 hanger.....1 for 2 people. This didn't work so well. The property is clean and centrally located.

Poor 2.0
It is a trap. It was a prepaid hotel and they charge me extra taxes, bad combative attitude of the front desk Daniel, I had to paid and Expedia did not solve my issues. The policy is not clear and false advertising! I read other reviews about the pool , and is true . It always out of service. The schedule it close at 6 pm!!.

Very nice place to stay, excellent location, clean. They only issue is with payment. They advertise that accept credit cards but ask for payment in cash.
us6 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Front desk staff was extremely helpful to arrange tours and ferry tickets. The location was great, since you can easily walk to the pier, Darwin station and food kiosks. Only complain - they were sneaky and omitted some information. For example, they omitted to let us know that hotel was under renovation and that some areas will be restricted (pool) and there will be construction during the day. Also, wifi was only available in the lobby. Overall, it is a good place and location for the price.

Es un hotel con excelente atención,muy buen ubicado y súper cómodo y limpio. Volvería a ir , también tiene cocina con heladera y bidón de agua.
Hostalespaña, us4 night trip
Very good 8.0
For what you pay, this is a very nice place to stay. It is very basic but very clean and comfortable. Somewhere between a hotel and a hostel but for just a little more than a hostel you get the privacy of a hotel. The staff were not super super friendly but were very helpful in making recommendations and overall I'm extremely pleased with the value.
