The hotel is very nicely located, just across from it you can find a supermarket and liquor store, in the same street are smalls restaurants (very cheap) and some other stores, just about 100 mts from hotel there is a bar with a nice outdoor area. The bus stop is a short 5 min walk. And just walk another 10 to 15 min and you'll find more bars, shops, and restaurants. The hotel is cleaned every day, it has TV and air conditioning that works just find, they also have a laundry room. The people at the front desk are very friendly and helpful, they will book taxis, transfers, or tours. The only down and maybe is just for you to be aware, is that there is a big hostel in front of hotel, and they are loud, I mean they party every night until 3 am. Maybe because it was the holidays, but is loud, so I recommend you request a room in the back or in the other side of hotel not in from of Lake St.

Room tip: Rooms in Lake St are noise bc of st, choose another room

We stayed at the Hides for a quick NYE getaway knowing we wouldn’t be spending much time in the room. The location is 100% right in the middle of town and easily accessible to anywhere you’d want to go. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the beds seemed new and extremely comfortable! The only critique would be the cockroaches, we felt they were coming out of everywhere which was a tad off putting but also understand can’t always be helped. Apart from that we had a great stay and would recommend for the budget warey who won’t be spending any time in the rooms!

Clean tidy and comfortable. Had a good rest here for a reasonable price. Some work needs doing to tidy the place up. The shower has taps outside the cubicle making it very hard to adjust the water temperature.

Friendly, helpful staff make guests welcome. Property is generally well kept, other than in the (shared) garage.
Very good wifi service.
Maintenance of air conditioning unit and bathroom exhaust fan could be improved.
