“They're not honest”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2007

I booked a double room there on internet ten days before I got there, and I didn't realize that I had not submitted the room fare on internet; then two days before we enter the hotel, I thought cancelling the room there and change to live in Adelaide which is far cheaper and better; but they said it's too late to cancel, and coaxed me that it would be a better deal to change it into a single if I want, which is not much cheaper(changed from $55 to $40), since if I just cancel the double room the purnishment could be high. The they asked for my credit card and ID(I'm a foreign travelor and could not exactly understand every word the African American guy said), then gave me a receipt of $40. It was later i realized if I didn't go there that time, I wouldn't need to pay the $40 for a single room(which later I found was so small, so dirty, with no TV, no bathroom, no table no chair!) , but I should just not go there and I can go to any other hostel to book a much cheaper room.
It's a bad hotel!

The place is really dirty. I'll find permanent residents in there not just "Guests". The sorrounding streets are scary specially at night fall.
The staff was friendly but unprofessional.

Price is very cheap and it isvery close to downtown.

Although I definitelly do not recommend that place.
Take extra care to your belongings.

DO NOT STAY HERE! You will get robbed.

Plus, they are unprofessional, it's dirty and in a horrible place of town.

My credit card number was copied from the desk and used for other purposes.

A friend of mine got his stuff stolen from a LOCKED locker.

Location was very close to everything, although it did get a bit scary at night. Room that we shared was private and barely big enough to fit a twin bed. On the plus side, we had a nice view of the neighborhood from our window. Staff was very friendly and bathrooms were always clean. I would definitely stay there again!
