  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

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.

  • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

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.
