Couldn't even stay there!
I've stayed in better places in 3rd world countries. Unclean is an understatement. Room was average and you didn't even get linen or towel. This was extra. Shared bathroom was disgusting. I couldn't even stay there and walked out leaving my two night booking cost behind with it. I know its budget accommodation but the place is in need of a major renovation.

Budget overnighter
While it's true that you get what you pay for, and the staff were very good at dealing with our late arrival, the room smelt of cigarette smoke, the television didn't work, and there wasn't even a glass for a drink of water.

Very suck!
Don't stay in this place!!! They want you pay the bond when you check in ,and use the credit card that you book in agoda and told you when you leave this place they will return the bond. And then when you leave this place and the city, you found you didn't get the bond back,they will use any kind excuse to take the bond. My roommate and I all be take the bond, and everyone know they always do this dirty things even though the yiro shop boss besides the hostel. I went to police is useless... Australia government just want you apply your loss... And this place live many homeless, they didn't clean the room every time . Just let you know!Don't think about this is a cheapest place! It's a dirty place as same as those heart!

Urgent room at reasonable price
Location. Location. Location.
Would have liked bed linen, but it got me through the night. Also note there are very few powerpoints in the rooms.

Half-Way House Not Backpackers
The Owner, Location
Common Areas were not cleaned or maintained. The share kitchen facilities were filthy with rotten food in fridge and unclean dishes and utensils. Motel rooms did not have an option of a kettle etc, so therefore must use common areas shared by homeless locals on long term arrangements, some of whom are obvious mental health patients. TV in motel room unable to receive channels, the bathroom was unclean with soapy slag marks down the mirror (as though someone staying prior had spat a mouthful of toothpaste straight onto the mirror. The only available smoking area was kept in a extremely filthy state, with food and tobacco all over the table and surrounding area, left uncleaned for days. Although the long term clients did regularly empty for resmoking, dropping everywhere.Very disappointing stay. It seems to be a government overflow for community members needing secure placements.
