Avoid at all costs. We were not expecting much. We just needed a bed for the night. All normal hotels were either fully booked or had hiked up their prices to $300-$500 per night due to being last minute peak long weekend. Didn't even feel comfortable getting into the bed so actually put on more clothes before going to sleep.... More

Made to feel very welcomed as the staff and other visitors were very helpful and friendly. Staff are amazing always asking if theres anything you need or even just to have a chat with. Excellent rooms and facilities. Very clean and tidy. Very safe and secure. Would recommend it and definitely stay here again .

When we first got to Arrival the management was very helpful with showing us around and helping us get settled. Happy Faces and good vibes all around. We stayed here for a business trip so basically it was just a room to sleep in, and for the price we paid this hostel was everything we needed. Amenities were clean and... More

After an unexpected crisis I checked out of hospital and into arrival accommodation. Not feeling the best Fred, Shane and the gang made me feel welcome and gave me a nice clean room which for $55 a night was as good as it gets. Fred explained the rules and gave me the grand tour . I found all the amenities... More

One staff member very rude and swore in front of my children. Not welcoming at all . Ask for $50 immediately upon arrival for key deposit. Shred bathrooms . Both bathrooms and rooms not very clean. Only spent one night couldn't wait to get out of there.

We honestly strongly recommend not to go here - there are other accommodation options within the price range that will be worth your money. The walls were too thin and we could clearly hear others all throughout the night - was not able to sleep. The room itself as well as facilities were inappropriately dirty. Think twice before you choose.

Share bathroom for all. No separate bathroom at room . You need to pay extra for the parking. Noisy. Drank man roaming around the hallway. Not a good place to stay specially for family. I regretted it paying $110 for a night plus parking.
