Property conditions & facilities

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The location was great. I couldnt get in when i got there as there was a code. Luckily the manager (who was off site) answered his phone and gave me good directions to access the building. The stairways were filthy- it looked like a meat tray had dripped through the entire hallway. The room had gaffer tape holding lots of the furniture together. There was a tv that dodnt work. Texta and graffiti decorated the walls. The bathroom was at least quite clean, had a nice hot shower. The bed was also comfy and the linen was clean. We propped pillows against the windows as there were no curtains...very cheap but nasty !!

Very dirty
Place is very dirty. Room full of empty beer bottles. Shower are dirty covered in mould. There are not keys for the room. The smell in the room was so bad I had to leave the window open in the middle of winter. Staff couldn’t care less.
