Liked: Friendly staff, very easy to meet people as there's a really good bar on sight, and having a common room means people always congregate in the same place . Also. Having a barbecue every Friday also makes it easy to meet people.

Disliked: The upstairs area and the kitchen closes.

Unfortunately have to pay extra for wifi but it worked very well and was very fast even in bedroom.

Disliked: Would have liked free wifi

Liked: It was quiet, the rooms were spotless, the staff were really friendly and the attached cafe/bar did the best breakfast I've had in Oz! It's about a 10-minute walk into the city proper but this didn't prove any problem.
