Customer review

02 June 2009

Liked: It was an ok place to stay, the showers were good and spacious but the people were all drug dealers. The smoking lounge seemed to be used as a dealers room with enough green and blocks to send anyone away for a long time.Bit of a boring atmosphere with no party life to it. WI-FI didn't reach the bedrooms but for somewhere to stay, it's ok.

19 December 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It's fantastic. It's just by the side of Pike market and easy to get the bus to the airport. People theher are friendly. What's more, there are curtains around the bed and socket, lamp just over you head. So great to enjoy your private space. If there is one thing shouid be better,that must be the kitchen. Not always clean.
