What a terrible hotel, we had to leave just 30mn after our check in!!! Very rude staff, absolutely no care about customer . Very dirty room, full of hairs, dirty floor and bathroom, impossible to change the room, impossible to be refunded, and impossible to stay and sleep in this “hotel” so we left, and find another hotel just 30mn after check in, with no care or no help from the staff there. Today I want my money back, that’s whole experience is unacceptable.

The staff is super nice, the broken shaker bar is unique and the standard is high for a hostel. The scenery is beautyful and the lights at the pool. There is a supermarket behind the property and several restaurants. The hostel is near the beach. I appreaciated the hospitality and kindness of the staff.

Gute Lage

Pros: Lage, Pool, Frühstück, Bar
Cons: Fenster konnte man nicht öffnen, es stinkt sehr, sehr modrig. Sauberkeit ist nicht so toll. Vergisst nicht selber eine Seife mitzunehmen!
Location: Lage ist sehr gut vor allem die Nähe zum Strand. Zur Lincoln Road fährt ein kostenloser Bus der direkt vor dem Hostel hält. Freizeit Angebote vom Host
Ich habe 10 Nächte im Freehand übernachtet, war hauptsächlich ein Relax Urlaub. Man sollte schauen das man ein Zimmer zur Strasse nimmt. in den Zimmer zum Garten wo die Bar ist kann man nur mit Ohrstöpsel schlafen. Sie Haben in den letzten 4 Jahren seit meinem letzten Aufenthalt einiges zum besseren Verbessert nur in den Zimmern gab es wohl keine weiteren Investitionen.

Das Zimmer war etwas abgelebt und direkt zur Hauptstrasse ausgerichtet (Lärm der Autos während der ganzen Nacht).
