Rooms and kitchen are clean, but reception staff not that friendly, also no raw milk for Breakfirst, also everyday questions for check out even though booked for 2 days , especially that man Syed, toilet and shower are clean, but only the attitude of staff that makes not happy, central location , close to transport, Good kitchen with gas and all utensils, Check out time 9.30 am too rushy, and they put notice that they charge $20 late fee if late by 10.30 am and after 10.30 am they charge one full nights charge. that creates tension and pressure , and cant sleep peacefully the night before check out.other than that everything fine.

NIGHTMARE.”

Based on my real experiences, imagine when you have to negotiate with rude lady receptionist about the early checkin and payment stuffs that you are already gave them a notice. Dirty bunk bed with heaps of fresh and dry rubbishs under the bed. Noisy at night start from 6 pm- midnight most of the time (I spent 3 nights) plus unrespectable by roommates(you might got lucky unfortunately I got a jackpot). Last, just can't wait to move out, it's totally nightmare. goodluck.
