Surprising place. If you are on a budget, then this is excellent value. Central location, has common areas with kitchen and dining, You can bring your own food if you like. There is a nightclub and bar, very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Great location,friendly staff,clen premises and good value for money. In particular a thank u to Emma and Bronwyn for their helpfulness and going that extra distance with our late check in. Only down point was our room was not serviced when asked for the night before and my mattress was beyond its expiry date. Otherwise everything else was excellent.

Ok people, it's a budget hotel so please keep that in mind. Pros: clean, great location, has a shared kitchen for those on a budget. There was a farmers' market practically across the street (Saturday morning), is walking distance to the Cataract Gorge walk (beautiful), a wonderful City Park, and great eateries. Cons: it's the bare essentials, price isn't 'budget'...
