Pleasant Stay with a Minor Setback
I recently had the pleasure of staying at Mama Shelter for a weekend getaway, and overall, my experience was quite enjoyable. From the welcoming staff to the impeccable cleanliness, there were plenty of reasons to appreciate this establishment. However, there was one significant drawback that affected the quality of my sleep during my stay—the HVAC noise in the bedroom. While the system effectively maintained a comfortable temperature, the noise it generated was quite disruptive. Throughout the night, the constant humming and occasional clanking made it challenging to enjoy a peaceful night's sleep.

Super Loud
I do like this hotel. The staff is friendly and it has a lot of character to it. However, if you are on one of the top floors, 4 or 5, be warned that the roof top can get extremely loud until 2 AM. Music and jumping. Felt like an earthquake.

Not a great location
A small hotel with a good small cafe/ restaurant. The neighbourhood was not for the faint hearted with a couple of rough streets nearby. Not a location I would want to return to.

We really enjoyed our stay at mama shelter. The staff had us in our room early, everyone took the time to talk and get to know us. The food was incredible and the night time vibe of the roof top patio and dining/bar was always top notch. I wasn't aware the sound travelled so loud into our room when I booked our stay, however the hotel comped us a free breakfast and provided ear plugs which was great. We would absolutely return to this hotel, we always had a smile on our face and had a fantastic weekend at their hotel
