    Close to the CBD, off-street parking, clean building but old..

    Stayed 1 night in Sep. 2019


    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Did not change the bed sheets and pillow covers. Weed and grass are growing everywhere in the garden and doors. Property is in low maintenance

    No wifi in dormitory, extremely cold

    They cheat you about internet. Don't believe! There is no wifi connection in the dormitory! You can fiind some in the corridor of kitchen. The whole building including all communal areas is terribly cold. The heater in the room produces unbelievable jetplane noise, so you cannot use it at night. And anyway the timer is set to 1 hour.

    Stayed 2 nights in Nov. 2018
