  • 2.0.Poor

    Worst nights sleep ever. Really bad nights sleep. I was in a private room and was constantly woke by noise of people passing in the corridor. Also very grimy and unclean.

  • 6.0.Good

    Great location. Everything was old and worn. Staff were okay, but had little enthusiasm for anything apart from the rules. I used the laundry which was $8 per hour but was luck to get out in two hours as their machines are mid-sized domestic models.

  • 6.0.Good

    Room had not been cleaned properly and a chair or table to put things would have been a help. Upgraded bathroom on level 3 was very good.

  • 4.0.Fair

    I will not recommand this place, even for young ba

    Very little single bedroom, nothing on the floor (painted concrete). No lift, so you have to carry your heavy suitcase until the third level, Awful lounge, bad smelt, don't even compensate the low price.
