Positive Reviews

Ideal for students

If you are on a budget, then these rooms will fit the pocket perfectly. Many travellers felt the location was ideal to the public transport system, and the choice of casual eateries close by was considered to be awesome.

Little extras work well

With the Wi-Fi service working really well, and friendly staff willing to assist whenever possible, guests also loved the little toiletries that were regularly replenished. The bathrooms were spotlessly clean, and the rooms well kept.

Good air-conditioning

Especially during the summer months, guests appreciated the fact that they had air-con units that not only did the job really well, but worked quietly too. You will feel the effect of the air-con throughout the rooms, and visitors noticed that the units looked rather new.

Negative Reviews

Not much comfort in the beds

Many complaints were received about the beds at these dorm rooms being way to firm. Most visitors during the summer months brought an extra blanket to cover the hard mattress for a more comfortable sleep.

Strong chemical smell

Many guests were quite alarmed with the strong smell coming from many of the carpets that had been ripped up and replaced. Guests felt the odour in the air may have cause allergies or breathing trouble. Nonetheless, after no medical issues this did not detract from an otherwise pleasant stay.

Noisy youngsters

If you happen to arrive before all the students have gone on their own vacations, then you might be in for a noisy night. Reports of students running up and down the hallways at night have been heard, so make sure you bring a set of ear plugs.
