Liked: Location, good kitchen.

Disliked: Everything was added to the price. Naturally laundry machines are coin operable. But cutlery, towels, soap, wifi were each ~$5. Especially cutlery and wifi felt a bit weird. Toilets were really unclean at all times.

21 October 2013 Elisabeth would recommend this property

Liked: Very helpful staff, I liked that it was draws under the beds so the room ie easy to keep tidy. I like that its proper dunas on the bed and not just only a sheet. The property has the best location, and by strict rools I felt very secure. (That you needed your key for every door).

Disliked: It was very small bathrooms, and not enough fridge space.
