Liked: If you are a young backpacker that likes to party this might be for you. This place is cheap, which is why it is loud and dirty. At one stage i was woken up in the middle of the night with a guy screaming. Great location.

Disliked: Loud and dirty.

Trip Type:
City break

Liked: It had a good location for Fortitude Valley, and was right next to a bus stop. It was quiet, no partying to disturb you. If it was cleaned up and maintained a bit it would be really nice!

Disliked: Dirty, everything covered in leaves from the garden - like a real thick covering of them - difficult to find staff to answer concerns, room windows broken so that the room wasn't secure and biting insects came in to share the room each night. Smelled bad indoors in the communal areas.
