We booked the hostel with no expectations but we were pretty surprised as the manager called us at 2pm and asked wether we arrive before or after 5pm since the reception closes at that time. Nevertheless, she greeted us more or less friendly and showed us our not-so-clean room. It smelled extremely weird in there and there was sand on...

Enjoyed the family room.Has plenty of room with comfortable beds and very clean facilities.Pool was awesome after a day out. Management are always available and very helpful, nothing was a problem .Can also hire dvds onsite for a night in or opt to relax in one of the 2 loungerooms. Good location too

I booked this last minute and price was ok. They asked for $50 cash deposit, though I only had 20 and they accepted that. No towels proved and cleanliness needs improving. Overall ok for quick and quiet enough stay

Worst customer service I have ever experienced. Hoping others have a better experience than I did. Owners are beyond disgraceful and rude. The place is extremely dirty and uncomfortable. SAVE YOUR MONEY and stay elsewhere !!!!

The downstairs car parking resembled a brothel with bags of old clothes, damaged cars and kids toys scattered around. The bedroom was dirty and felt like a goal cell but without the television. Never again

I was staying in self contained room, it was fairly clean and tv room was also clean. I was there winter, another blanket would have been good. Toilets and showers are ok but nice to have mens and womens perhaps - my girlfriend preferred that. Some construction work is going on, good to see them fix up the toilet, shower...

This accommodation met my expectations based on the rating and price of the place. Just needed a bed for the night And this was good. Noticed in the morning that the bed cover was very dirty and stained underneath. Paid $68 for a twin room for the night so didn't expect 5 star. I suggest if you want to surround...

My room was cleaned spotless and well serviced upon my arrival, nothing was missed. My room was inviting, very comfortable and well ventilated. The lounge areas were great for viewing your favourite TV channels including DVD player for your entertainment and a Bookcase equiped with books for your reading pleasure. A vending machine with snacks and refreshments is located on...

Fairly sure it was a halfway house not a motel, chipboard bedside table falling to pieces, stains on the sheets and blanket. Desk chair was white at some stage, nice cannabis smell in the room, shared toilets in need of repair, garage roller door faulty. Don't waist your money unless your desperate.
