6/10 Good

The place was clean - bedroom, kitchen, lounge and bathrooms. Service - receptionist was friendly and helpful. Noisy - residents made lots of noise in lounge and only quieted down/slept after 11:30pm. Little privacy for showers - to dry and dress oneself, there is only an open area, exposed to all who enter the bathroom. Would be nice to have an enclosed area by the showers e.g. another set of curtains. Also no hooks to hang up clothing or towels if using the showers. Overall good, overnight accommodation.

It was good especially if you're a backpacker. It was clean and you feel comfortable plus no-one disturbs you. Wasn't really what I was expecting but I was honestly still satisfied. Would definitely want to go again.
