our room the first two nights was small but not uncomfortable. everything is very clean, great hot water and water pressure, and a filling breakfast to boot. i would definitely recommend to other budget travelers.

... these windy corridors to get to our room (and through two massive steel security doors!) Its like Alice in Wonderland lost down a rabbit hotel route :)
That night we went back to our new favourite for tea - the Hardrock cafe!! and Brianna and I both got Hardrock cafe tops :)
