Location and price
After an initial room mix up, my stay was fine, I’ve been here multiple times before due to its location, price and even though I could hear outside noise, I slept soundly.

Great location
Location was perfect in the CBD two blocks from Southern Cross Station. All the free trams where closes by. Breakfast was good for the price, love the luggage storage and self-serve laundry. 7-11 up the street, close to South Wharf and Southbank where the casino is at

Good location across from Southern Cross station. Clean & big room with a super comfy bed & pillows. The king room even had a microwave which was a good touch & when it was a bit hot the 1st day, we got a fan which helped. The front desk staff don't acknowledge you when you go past the desk which is not the best customer service. But not too bad value for the price.

There was black mould on the roof in the shower and behind the rail for the door to the bathroom. You can use one of those sponge type mops with bleach to get rid of it fairly easily without needing ladders or such.
