Having only read these reviews below after my stay i can only imagine that the few people below were expecting to stay in a 5 star HOTEL! Not a 5 star HOSTEL!
I can't fault anything with Smart City. There were zero problems checking in, sure i had to wait about 5 mins while the people in front of me checked in, but im not such an ego manic that i expect to swan to the front of the que. The shared room i stayed in was lovely and clean, and yes i stayed over new year when it was insanely busy but i had no issues with people or noise etc.
The bar was amazing! Yeah it was really busy, but it was New Years eve! I waited for quite a bit for food, but the staff were very apologetic and nice about it. The bar on site was actually one of the nicer ones i visited during my trip, when i was there the bar staff especially were in great spirits! Brody, Steve and Lizzy were great fun, making my friends and i feel part of the gang by chatting to us at the bar etc.
A great feature is the guest kitchen, so we could cook for ourselves and one thing if i have to mention a negative would just be that the floors make a noise while you walk on them, which isnt great for coming and going late at night.
All in all i had a blast staying here and so did my friends. We will be back in the near future and really look forward to it!
