Liked: It was a bed to sleep in - cheaper than most hostels.

Disliked: The place is filthy. The "cleaners" don't clean the bathrooms at all and they just barge in to your room without knocking.Also, a lot of the floor tiles are loose so there's a bit of a health and safety concern there, as well as the lights in the bathrooms are dangerous. This should be reported. Also, the staff couldn't care less about the guests. They are just sitting in a chair listening to music with headphones in their ears while they talk to you. And one staff member had brought her son to work which meant you had to listen to crying and screaming in the lobby constantly and witness her smacking him constantly. Very concerning!!!

Liked: The rooms were good value for money and it was in a good location. If like me you aren't too bothered with niceties it is OK for a few nights. The staff are lovely and really helpful.

Disliked: It needs some general repair and cleaning. The bathrooms are run down and need some serious cleaning but were OK with flip flops on.

Liked: The location and proximity to the subway was great. The air conditioner in the rooms were also a definite life saver.

Disliked: I stayed on the second floor and there were only two washrooms. One had a burnt out lightbulb leaving us all to the one bathroom after dusk.

Liked: Staying in a classic building in a great location, close to subway

Disliked: No wifi apart from kitchen/lounge. The place isn't clean nor safe. Two shared bathrooms on my floor; one with no curtain on the window (with a glass panel between shower and window) and nil water projection with a broken soap dispenser, second with nil light and has a growing hole in ceiling from wet rotting. Room window had large hole beside air conditioner making the room hot and easy access for bugs and birds. Room swipe keys are not room specific; able to open multiple doors and therefore no protection. Not all lockers able to be locked. Kitchen doesn't even have a toaster.
