Fabulous

Overall a good stay. Good showers, very hot and powerful. Kitchen was also fine. We had a private room which was perfectly fine for the price. As others have said be warned about the music on a Friday and Saturday night. Extremely loud until about 2am even with ear plugs. However we also stayed on a Sunday and that was totally fine. The bar downstairs has a good vibe and cheap drinks with your room key. Good value for money if you are happy with the noise!

Good location with a decent bar downstairs. Very spacious and had air con. Kitchen had barely any utensils - there were no forks to use and everything needed washing again before using it or was so wore down. I almost fell off the bed because the ladder and bed rail was falling off. The bed was shaking all night. It was a place to sleep for the night so for $20 it’s not bad!
