    It was quite close to the city center.

    The room is noisy like hell. The wooden floor creaks on even on very small moves and because the room is so small, the noise from the movements from the wooden floor above is very very loud due to vibration. The common toilets and wash are dirty and very wet as they had a big group of hockey players. They charge for their pool table and crappy cooking stove which need rocket science education to operate. I paid $83 for a tiny twin bed room and they can't even give us a towel. The pictures are misleading and the swimming pool is a large bathtub.

    Staff were friendly and welcoming. Good service in general. Facilities were of good standard. Location ideal to shops.

    Noisy neighbours can hear people talking outside room and foot traffic.

    Lovely staff, they upgraded us for free on arrival so we didn't have to dorm with some school kids that were staying there.

    Kitchen was strange but functional. Also to access the toilets you had to go outside, which for showers and things was a tad chilly in the wind
