2/10 Poor

Bring a wedge with you to secure your bedroom door if you cannot afford anything better. Situated at the bottom of a very steep hill well away from amenities. Staff do not have a good grasp of English. I would avoid this and use backpackers or ordinary hotel such as the Albion in Hobson street instead.

2/10 Poor

Booked in my family for two nights, we ended up staying one night. It was AWFUL! The place was so dirty i just couldn’t believe it. The room we stayed in had 3 separate bedrooms, 1 toilet and shower. All disgusting! Nothing was clean absolutely nothing! I ended up putting their towels down on floor for us to walk as it was that dirty! I wiped fridge, sinks and tables before we even did anything. My poor children was so happy to stay in apartment for the weekend but i could not leave them one more night in that disgusting awful place. Elevators dirty and old and only one. Dodgy people walking in and out all the time. Not a place for children at all! The stairs was so disgusting and what the hell is that smell all over that place! You have been warned. Do not stay here. Rough and run down. Spend your money somewhere else. Im sorry to my children:(
