    The price / quality ratio was good. The receptionist was welcoming and help me to find bus.

    My bed make some noise every time when I move. And the shower don't work well.

    Really nice staff. Very nice rooms (except for those squeaky metal bunk beds). The house is a bit away from the CBD but still in walking distance. Very close to Hagley Park from where you get to the botanical garden. The airport bus line is also just a two minute walk away. Would stay there again.
