The place is in need of renovation, as everything looks really dated, but it's very close to the city and the MCG, so it's good value for money if all you want is a place to sleep. We didn't spend a whole lot of time in our room so it was easy to ignore the decor. However, the hot water ran out every night, so I just had to adjust to washing my hair ultra fast. The internet's free, which is a plus. We stayed there for a week, but I think housekeeping only came in a couple of times - not that we were particularly messy. The room we received was warm and quiet. It was a little annoying that they didn't seem to have an e-mail address for enquiries prior to arrival so you had to call, which could be tricky for visitors from overseas. And the guy up front was nice enough, but a smile wouldn't hurt.
