Staying in this place nestled within a lush green campus made me very happy. The location is about 1.5 km away from the city center. Access to public transportation is very easy from right in front of the campus. Breakfast was included. There was a quite extensive breakfast menu, so I was very pleased with that. The bed was not great, but for a single room in such a campus with breakfast included, it was manageable. The cleanliness was extremely satisfying. I would stay once again.

Interesting type of stay. I definitely felt like a uni student even though I never was. It's like a labyrinth to get in and out of an orienteering skill won't go astray to find your way around. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was abundant you won't go hungry!! The room was generally ok just outdated the bathrooms much more. Sheets and bed was again okay. The price was ok for the experience overall 🙏✨️🇦🇺
