The name should have been the give-away but we probably didnt expect the bed to touch 3 walls of the room with one tiny walk-way - only one person could get dressed at a time. The shower had good pressure but the space was pretty small too and we would definitely recommend that you take your own soap - there was a dispenser on the wall but the soap was so watered down that it may as well have just been water.

A busy week in Hamilton so availability of accommodation was scarce and not much choice at relatively last minute. Would not be my preferred choice in the future. Noise from other guests particularly when they were climbing stairs and when they were shutting [slamming] doors the walls of my room rattled. Very poor curtaining particularly over the door. Disappointed to find window open on my arrival with smokers in the vicinity [too close to rooms] and security issue with window left open during the day after so called servicing. TV perched on a bar stool beside the bed. Shower attachment needs fixing also folding seat in shower needs a good clean with mould remover. With very little effort most of these things could be rectified. Car parking an issue on my return late at night. Its basically a backpackers and on that basis you get what you pay for. Didn't check out communal kitchen and laundry facilities.
