Great value and location.
Could have been a little cleaner
Very clean Friendly staff Parking available
Very slow wifi Noisy beds Unstable shower temperature Pooltable in very bad condition
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.
The building is super pretty and good facilities like kitchen and shower
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.
