10 March 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very clean, safe, free wifi, good location. The owner does a brilliant job don't have a bad word to say about her or the other staff working there. Not the best place to meet people as its more for people just arrived in Auckland and only stay and night or two. Apart from that definately recommend it and if I ever make it back to Auckland would stay there again.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
