Great communication, reception rang to check if we would arrive before reception closed or to make other arrangements. However, the property is tired, old fittings, cobwebs and the room stank of cigarette smoke.

On booking in the room was old but clean and tidy. After a time the bath was backing up with what appeared to be sewerage. As the office was closed I contacted the phone number and the receptionist travelled from her home 20 minutes away to move me into another room. I understand that the room wasn't used recently due to plumbing issues and every effort had been made to correct the problem. Given the staff reaction in addressing the problem and the price point of the accommodation it is still worth a try. Hopefully the plumbing issues have been rectified.

The room was absolutely filthy, smelt of dirty cigarette smoke, and looked nothing like the images online. The website states the rooms have had a recent refurbishment, Foxtel and other listed amenities all of which was entirely false! As soon as we arrived, we instantly began looking for alternate accommodation as we did not feel safe or comfortable staying here (sadly Melbourne had no other accommodation over the weekend). The absolute only positive I can give is the location, which is nice and close to Acland Street in St Kilda.
