Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Bathrooms were large and showers always had hot water. Rooftop is really nice, and you can BYOB up there, too! The beds are comfy, but quite squeaky. The room I stayed in had noise from people chatting on the street outside until late at night. There’s a cute little thrift shop downstairs with tons of clothing, so check it out if you need something- proceeds go to bushfire relief. Be aware that they charge for towels and luggage storage here. Location is right by the Queen Victoria markets, which have cute souvenirs for cheap.
