Guest reviews for Criterion Art Deco Backpackers

3 out of 5
Bedding only suitable for duster ! Wobbly taps, water not running away properly in shower and the smallest sink imaginable in the room with private facilities. However, the location of this property is great and we enjoyed our stay. On a budget? You couldn’t fault it.
