Liked: Staff were really really friendly. They were ready to offer advice and what to see and do and how to get around.

Disliked: Location wasn't great. But there is free transport downtown between certain hours so that sort of makes up for it.

07 November 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The place is super clean, everything is light and friendly. I loved the lounge room, it's almost like a cozy living room. Also the breakfast was great!

Disliked: Shower curtains. It would provide a little more privacy if there were proper doors attached to the showers. But this is really just a minor thing and I realize it's not possible due to the space.

28 July 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: All the bedding and inside of the building is new. What a great kitchen!!! Loved the kitchen. Staff was really nice and helpful, except for the cleaner that kicked me out of the bathroom. Good beds and decent breakfast. close to everything I needed. Great supermarket one block away if you want an Asian experience.

Disliked: I was asked to go to another bathroom in the morning by a short stout latino woman so she could clean it, which is fine, but shouldn't you pick a better time to clean the bathrooms, other than in the morning when people are trying to use them? Probably would have been fine, but she was a little gruff about it.
