Please note I review this as a hostel and not a hotel.
Great hostel in great place. The room I stayed at was one of larger 5 beds, I was traveling alone and found the place safe comfortable and clean to an excellent degree plus air con.
A free breakfast is served in the communal area each morning which consists of toast jam peanut butter Vegemite and butter, also cereal is available. You get a free drink voucher when you check in for use at the bar that evening and when you flash your key card meals are reduced from $13 to $10
The bathroom is big with a jacuzzi bath ( I didn't use this only the shower) shower works great. In my room there was also a fridge to use.
Pro's = great room clean safe comfortable quiet, pool area and cheap tasty food and free breakfast. 11 am check out
Con's = air con a little loud, no lockers at the time.
Suggestion = take bug spray simply due to location I would recommend to friends other guests in my room said it was amazing compared to other hostels they had stayed at
Other hostels in the area are 8 plus dorms and situated above bars.
