    Superb

    It was central for out daily routines and close to where we needed to be. Close to shops, eplanade lagoon, night markets & restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful and provided us with maps and brochures. ;)

    Noisy backpackers at 12:40am, but when the staff knew they shut they down, apologised to me and it didn't happen again. :). No private car parking. I had to leave my hire car on the street which was a bit of a worry. Would have felt better knowing it was locked up but it was ok.

    There was no much to like. I never looked at any reviews when I booked it because it was an emergency booking but I looked at the pictures and it looked really nice. Sort of like the resorts in the gold coast but when I got there what a dump.

    I did not like staying there, on arrival there was a big party in the premises and it was unsightly, drunks everywhere. They partied until 3 in the morning and we had QLD track and field the next day and we were tired. The beds had bed bugs in it. Their was no toilet paper or shampoo and conditioner. 4 of us booked in and there was only enough towels for 3 of us. Their was no coffee or tea but a kitchenette. The pool was dirty and the microwave did not work.

    We didn't get the rooms we booked and paid for. We booked two of the two bedroom apartments with ensuite, bath and cable tv and sofa in lounge and got none of what we wanted in either of the two apartments. It was very noisy with loud drinking and partying and no one to ask them to be quiet. Did not suit families at ll, it was a backpackers accommodation but not advertised as such.

    Fabulous

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Very good location and good price.

    We stayed in a self-contained apartment (one double and one single bed) which was more than adequate. A little dark, but then we spent most of the time outdoors. Further improvements could be made by adding lights to the stairwells and dusting the room a bit better.

    It was very dirty. Bedding was old and stained. There was no equipment for doing the dishes, not tea or coffee milk etc. Old furniture, old food under the cushions on the couch. Bits of cutlery, some dirty. Paint peeling, plaster in holes in both the doors. Generally an unpleasant experience.

    Location and price

    Overall standard at the level of an old 'backpackers'... Pool water cloudy, dirty (wouldn't let your kids in it), algae not been cleaned off paving for a long time (safety hazard, and looks terrible), very limited parking, fans too old and noisy to leave on at night, exhaust cover in bathroom missing and too noisy to run (hence couldn't turn the lights on in bathroom), upholstery torn with broken zips, airconditioner only just working and old, noisy. Charity shop collection of cutlery and crockery and not enough for the number of beds, nothing to do dishes with (had to go and buy brush, sponge). But hey, the place is cheap. Backpackers probably don't mind at all.

    Location was perfect, it is in the city center and hotel staff was very friendly.

    Beds were dirty, there are cigarettes and hairs on the beds.

    Very good

    Handy for the boardwalk, shops and eating places. The young man who served us was very helpful. Safety with the use of keys to get in after hours and having our car locked inthe carpark.

    THe room smelt musty and damp. Needs to be repainted and spruced up.

    The room itself was reasonably clean and spacious.

    The shared kitchen was ill-equipped and dirty. The stairways were not regularly cleaned and were grimy.

    Close to airport and city.

    Noisy with young people coming back to room after a night out.\Walls paper thin. Really suited for young backpackers and hostel type stays.

    Good

    Zuerst einmal die positiven Aspekte, Lage und Zimmer sind generell total in Ordnung, ABER...

    Das Personal war einfach unverschämt!!!Da der Empfang nur bis 19 Uhr besetzt ist und wir erst um 20 Uhr angekommen sind (ich hatte aber vor 19 Uhr versucht jemanden zu erreichen, ohne Erfolg!) hat es erstmal 1 Std.gedauert bis jemand gekommen ist um uns den Schlüssel zu übergeben. Hier wurde ich telefonisch schonmal angemotzt wieso wir erst so spät kommen würden und dass ich ja nicht reserviert hätte (hatte schon 2 Wochen vorher gebucht und Buchungsbestätigung vorhanden, abgesehen davon wollten noch 2 weitere Mädels einchecken). Im Zimmer angekommen hat uns erstmal eine Kakerlake begrüßt, dies war allerdings noch das kleinere Übel diese Nacht...Wir würden nie wieder dort buchen da das Personal total inkompetent und sowas von nicht hilfsbereit war! Unser Zimmerschlüssel hat beim Check-in noch funktioniert, wir waren dann etwas essen und als wir wieder gekommen sind haben wir die Tür nicht mehr aufbekommen (wir dachten erst wir sind blond und weiblich und dass es daran liegt aber nachdem 6 weitere Personen versucht haben uns zu helfen, konnte das nicht sein ;-))Wir haben ein zweites Mal bei der Rezeptionsdame angerufen und dieses Mal wurde ich sowas von angeschnauzt...was mir einfallen würde sie nochmal anzurufen, ob ich wüsste wie spät es ist, dass sie 7 Tage die Woche arbeitet und schlafen will...ich habe dann gesagt, dass wir genau das selbe möchten, einfach nur schlafen, unsere Zimmertür aber nicht funktioniert. Sie hat dann einfach aufgelegt und da sie das beim ersten Mal auch gemacht hatte und nach 1 Std.da war, dachten wir diesmal passiert das Gleiche,leider falsch gedacht...es kam einfach NIEMAND! Wir konnten weder an unser Gepäck noch irgendwie in unser Zimmer...wir haben am nä.Tag das Geld zurück verlangt (natürlich hat die Dame das Zimmer selbst auch nicht mit dem Schlüssel aufbekommen!) und erst wollte sie uns auch nur die Hälfte des Preises zurückgeben aber damit waren wir natürlich nicht einverstanden und haben auf eine vollständige Rückgabe bestanden!

    Exceptional

    일단 번화가와 가깝고, 가격이 매우 저렴하다.

    취사시설(전기버너)만 추가 되었으면 좋겠다.
