Liked: The separate showers in female only dorms, the pool, the distinction between rooms giving each one character e.g two kangaroos, shelf space in female only dorm was adequate, common area facilities good, staff friendly and knowledgeable.

Disliked: Only two toilets for the whole block, only one fridge for number of rooms on upper floor kitchen. Reception hours - closed for 4 hours (!) in the middle of the day. The mattresses need changing as some are just worn and thin. Checked out early because my back was killing me from laying on the poor foam mattress. The kitchen isn't particularly clean. Internet doesn't work very well even when you have paid for it.

Liked: The air con in the room was alife saver as it gets very hot in the morning. The pool table is good for relaxing and meeting new people.

Disliked: The lights go off at 10:30 and some nights you maybe want to stay up a little later.

Liked: This is the second time i stayed at CCB. I like it beacause it's peacefull and it has a very friendly staff.

Disliked: It wouldn't be bad if they would renovate kitchen and toilet facilities (doors). The cleaning lady should take the trash from the rooms every day.

Liked: Very cheap price, every night a free dinner voucher for the Woolshed.

Disliked: One shower and one toilet for about 20 persons in our floor. They advertise air condition but activate it starting at October, the 6 persons bedroom was horrible warm.
