Positive Reviews

A Good Location in the City

Guests thought the location of this property was a definite perk. They liked being able to walk to bars and restaurants, including those on nearby Long Street.

Value for Money

Guests believed that this hotel had lower room rates than other accommodation in the area. Because of that, many guests chose to stay here when they didn't mind getting basic rooms and a roof over their head.

Hospitable Receptionists

Guests commented that the receptionists were cheerful and ready to provide assistance. They also mentioned the staff at the front desk were knowledgeable about the area and eager to give tips about things to do or how to get around.

Negative Reviews

Very Dirty and Rundown

Guests were not pleased with the cleanliness level and upkeep of the hotel. They complained about issues ranging from dirty sheets to peeling paint. Together, these factors frequently made guests have second thoughts about staying.

Cramped Rooms

Guests said that the rooms were so small, there was barely enough space for anything but a bed. The limited size was typically most obvious when guests were staying with friends or family members, and they mentioned the arrangement is impractical unless a person is a solo traveller.

Not Enough Soundproofing

Guests griped that the walls are thin in the rooms and that other occupants were not considerate of their noise levels. On top of that, noises from outside are easily heard from inside. All these things were disruptive during stays.
