Location was not what I would consider 'Downtown', but apparently it is. Pictures look much better than reality. Room and bathroom were not clean. VERY budget accommodation but at a non-budget price.This hotel has no late-key pickup service that is on-site (eg lock box). I was made to pickup a key from there backpackers location where the front door was locked and entry via the bar on a very busy Friday night at 1am with all my bags. No service given when arrived. They did however pay for the taxi which was great because its not that close! The hotel has a cleaning problem. The room and bathroom were very poorly cleaned. Communal areas like the stairwell and hallways are not clean. Breakfast was pathetic. I think I saw a bag of bread and one spread and a toaster. Staff attitudes were poor. Only cheerful experience was the letter they gave with my key. Perhaps my expectations were too high but based on the rate paid, I expected...
"Though it bills itself as a hostel, this new joint actually features affordable singles and doubles with shared baths, TVs and balconies. The communal kitchen is a good place to toss some pasta, but with Kensington Market’s cheap eats right outside your door, why would you bother?" read more on Lonely Planet
