Liked: The only thing I liked about this property was the price a night

Disliked: Everything from the nastiness of the showers, restrooms, rooms, everywhere honestly. Its not the cleanest place. Staff was average. Didn't really get a good tour, it was just this is this that is there, here are you sheets and pillow goodbye.

Liked: Really cool place, lots of art, beautiful common areas and a great pool! Good dinners and breakfasts if you cant be bothered going out/cooking too. Lovely staff, very helpful!

Disliked: They did have to move me on the last night due to administration errors which was a bit frustrating and probably could have been avoided. Kitchen was pretty dirty and couldnt find cutlery anywhere!

Liked: Eclectic and welcoming. The common space inside and out were great to make new friends and relax.

Disliked: Although the bathrooms were cleaned daily (I am assuming, as it was cleaned by the afternoon) when I first arrived at night it was a little dirty. Nothing unbearable, this is if I had to pick something that did stand out.
