Positive Reviews

Great base for exploring Perth

The location of the property is spot on for exploring Perth according to guests. It is within a ten-minute walk from the train station, which can take anyone to father parts of the country. The area where the establishment is situated is also a home to many bars, clubs, restaurants, and cafes.

Clean shared toilet and shower

Guests loved that the shared bathroom has proper cubicle doors and not just curtains. Even though they are shared facilities, previous guests are impressed that the facilities are well-maintained and the quality, like the water pressure and temperature, aren't taken for granted.

Impressive staff offers unparalleled service

The staff member shows what unparalleled service truly is! They always greet guests on arrival and assist them whenever they can. They are very informative, helpful and extremely professional.

Negative Reviews

Renovation and updates are necessary

Many guests commented that the property is a budget and old establishment. Most of them said it needs a serious updating and repainting, as it has become dated and run-down. Reviewers are especially repulsed by the carpet and the chipped paint on the walls.

No in-room heaters

Rooms were so cold that it made guests uncomfortable and unable to sleep. There were no heaters in the rooms, and extra blankets were not provided. This issue gets more serious during winter time, where it gets very cold everywhere in the property aside from the lobby.

Irritating, squeaking floors

Floor boards squeaked every time guests step on it, and the noise did not fail to disturb. Many guests even complained and expressed that the building has the squeakiest floor boards they ever heard.
