Property condition

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Comfortable bed, fast free WiFi, and conveniently located less than 10 minutes walk from the CBD. However, if you are over 1.7m tall, you might have trouble getting your head under the shower head, which is fixed way too low on the wall - I have a bad back, and found having to crouch underneath it difficult. Noisy mini fridge in my room too. Friendly and welcoming hosts.
