The staff was very friendly. We asked if we could leave our bags in a secure area prior to check in so we didn't have to take them to the beach, and they did this, On one night of our stay they had to move us to a different room, they said they would move everything for us while we... More

Stayed here the night before a morning flight out of Liberia. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, the restaurant food was surprisingly tasty, and their airport shuttle was on time. Courtyard was cute and the facility is nice and quaint despite its central location. Only downside is lack of A/C, but the room's ventilation was good.

Central location, yet quiet courtyard. Nice property, restaurant on location may not look like much, but the food was surprisingly good! Only 3 beds in shared dorm, fairly spatious. Dorms with shared bathroom are very basic. Showers could use a bit of a facelift! Cleanliness was not an issue though.

We stayed here one evening after arriving late to Liberia. Wifi only available in the lobby area but our room was right next to the lobby so we got wifi in our room! Very simple room. Clean enough. There's parking available but you'll need to alert someone to unlock the gate and let you in.

The hotel was in my Lonely Planet, saying it was a budget option, which I couldn't believe when I saw the website and entered it one in Liberia. We arrived quite late in the evening and decided to just try and see. Since we had a price in mind, we asked to place our own matrass in one of the... More

We only stayed here for one night in a dorm, which was clean and tidy. It was in a good spot close to shops and the bus station not a far walk away. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Restaurant had really delicious food at a reasonable price. The place is really lovely and has a nice courtyard.

The position of the hotel can't be beaten - only a 2 minute walk from the city centre. However the rooms are very basic, especially where we were at the back of the hotel in the new area. The manager didn't want to know when we mentioned our lack of wardrobe... apparently 2 shelves are a wardrobe.

There is no AC unfortunately but since we just needed a place to stay one night after getting in at the airport at 11pm we thought we could handle it. I didn't sleep at all. Hottest night I've ever spent... On another note... place was clean and staff was friendly.

We booked this hotel after seeing the cute pictures and good reviews. However, when we arrived we found the room to be disgusting. The floor was concrete and cracked with many holes. The door to the bathroom could barely be called white there was so much dirt on it. Visible finger marks in dirt. The bathroom sink was cracked and... More
