Liked: It was central-close to Te Papa. I enjoyed the reading room and T.V. rooms.The standard of cleanliness was outstanding. My single room was very comfortable, even if the view was a rusty tin roof!

Disliked: When I arrived about 11.30am on Monday 2nd of Feb. the female receptionist was holding a long friendly converstaion on the phone.I had to wait. The system of door opening should always be demonstrated slowly to an older client-I'm 81,and found it frustrating often when I couldn't make it work.Much bigger fridges would be great. I only used my milk and cream cheese once,then it vanished under dozens of other bags. I never found it.

Liked: It was near Te Papa, Mt Victoria, and right across the street from a grocery store. The facilities such as the TV room and the open kitchen and eating area were also nice.

Disliked: The rooms were not vacuumed which was pretty obvious. The Internet was super slow (though free) and whenever I had a question for the front desk there was always a line so it was not that easy to get information. Finally, it is a long walk (45-60 min) from the ferry or naked bus stop.
