  • Liked: Staff & service

Nice friendly staff good service. The room was okay but missing one blind & after a long night out the sun came straight in it woke me up & it got hot in there. Otherwise it was good

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Room basic. Facilities tired. Maintenance not good. Cleanliness of shared facilities poor. Will not repeat the experience and certainly not at the price paid.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

    Formerly beautiful building, bit of a run down shithole (upstairs at least), but not the worst of the run down shitholes- so sad the renos upstairs weren't better quality.... strange what you get for a hundred bux for a night's stay in 'Straya.... Hope the owners can afford some faded '80's prints upstairs sometime

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    Dirty, rooms full of dust. Old peelings inside the rooms falling in.
