Average and what you'd expect for the price although there should have been a second bedside table

Wanted an alternative to a hostel so spent a little extra for some minor luxury. Check in and out was easy, and the room was exactly as advertised!

You've got to try the restaurant partner.
The staff is great! The hotel is dated and the rooms Spartan. The restaurant that partners with them is totally awesome. Great fish.

O.k. stay for the price.
Good place for the price. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and upgraded our room. The lock on the room was very dated, and didn't give the impression it was very secure. An easy walk to the Esplanade, but the neighbourhood in the other direction was sketchy (a lot of people sleeping on the streets and wandering patients from the nearby hospital).

Reception staff need training in hospitality. Room had everything one needs and comfortable bed. Why the need for toxic deodorising in rooms?
