Liked: Helpful staff, good location, quiet

Disliked: Bathroom is always wet & has hair all over, but this actually depends on the people whom you share the bathroom with. Shower area needs toiletries holder. Sink in the toilet is too small to even wash our face.

22 June 2010 Ryan would recommend this property

Liked: The free internet access was fast and unlimited, which is rare in Australia. That was my main reason for staying here. The location is pretty good, a bit away from the main drag so it's quiet, but an easy walk to everything.

Disliked: Ryan left no negative feedback.
