Good 7.8 From 21 reviews

Very good 8.0
Great on a budget
I had a single room, it's simple student style accommodation, but the room was spacious, the linen clean, the single bed comfortable and the hotel com price cheap. Good location.

Nice place, friendly staff
Adam, nz3 night business trip
Fair 4.0
I can say that I was overall rather disappointed considering the previous reviews. On the plus side it is in an excellent position close to the town and great bars and brunch cafes, the staff were pleasant and the sheets were clean. However, the building is very shabby and although it has a fridge (ours has someone else’s hummus in it) and a stove, there was no cutlery, crockery, pans, kettle or glasses rendering them pretty useless! Apparently this was because people kept stealing them. There was some of this available in the communal kitchen on a different floor, I was told. On the whole, I don’t think I’d be going back.

I enjoyed staying there, very good value for money. The location is good, close to Cuba street (5min walk). Staff were friendly and helpful.
