Good hostel”

Good, quiet hostel. Stayed 1 night but enjoyed it. Came here after I checked out elsewhere in georgetown bc I didn't like it. Prices of hostels in Georgetown in general are a bit high. Red Court is no exception. (You don't often see that it's more more expensive than the main city). When I checked in (this was before 14:00) the bed wasn't ready. No problem, only need it at night and left to explore. At 23:00 the bed still wasn't made and I had to go to another room. I didn't get my towel bc they where all gone and only came next day at 11. These 2 things could've been better organized. The hostel is very relaxing and quiet but still social. Employees are helpful and friendly. Bath facilities are good. Beds are good. Pillow was to simple. All in all would stay again, I assume the things mentioned above are not common.

I stayed in this place with my friend for 4D3N. I think the price is reasonable. And plus, they provide clean towels. We stayed in a room (Room 205) with private bathroom+toilet. However I think the bathroom door needs fixing. It can be closed but it have holes so I hope the inn staffs could fix it. And the bathroom lamp won't light up sometimes. Hopefully they'll fix that too. But overall it was a nice stay as they have all the basic necessities - comfy bed, pillows, blanket & long mirror. The receptionists are friendly and helpful too. 👍👍
