Good location near University of Waikato. Easy walking distance to food and shopping. Safe but no staff at night. Mostly tidy. Warm with large heat pump. No carpet or rugs and non-insulated walls so can be loud. Overall, good value for money.

Worst place I’ve stayed. 3rd person in our room had cold shower. Floors filthy. Could hear everything from room above us as wooden floors. Notes everywhere threatening that if you break or lose something how much you will have to pay. Office said it would be open at 8 still wasn’t open at 9. Would never stay there again and would never recommend it to anyone.
