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

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.
