Dear guest. We do all we can to ensure clean and friendly and comfortable environment. We are in a beautiful family street location with major shopping centres and all public transport within 5-10 mins walk. Not sure what else a traveller should ask for!

Booked a mixed rm of 8. Demanded a room for girls only and got it. "Ok" is hardly appreciative.

Dear guest. Your concerns are not clear.

Stole my money

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Honesty and lack of theft.
Location: I wouldn't be able to say.
I didn't stay: they took my booking, then said they couldn't arrange for entry after 7pm. On their advertisement they say you can enter after 7pm, and give a mobile phone number. The person on the phone said no. She also said she would cancel the booking so they didn't take my money. She didn't do that.

Happy and comfortable.

Pros: The price is very cheap.
Cons: I suggest the room can still be renovated and the price can be raised a little more.
Location: That is great. Can get transportation easily.
It is the best choice if you are not stay in the room for all times.
