Small and Basic
Just enough room to swing a supporter scarf around....shower area was exposed to room, which made it awkward for room mates for a weekend of footy....Room served its purpose for sleep and shower, but nothing else....Location was excellent in the city, close to all ammenities

6/10 Good

The location is very good for shopping and trams. Checkin and out was good but my room, in particular the shower, toilet floor and walls were very dirty. Housekeeping was hit and miss (mostly miss) and despite their visitor card explaining that shampoo and conditioner were available from the vending machine, this was not the case. Good for budget accommodation I guess but I would not stay there again.
