After a hectic trip up the coast, what a breath of fresh air it was to find 'Arrival Accomodation'. Shane and Matt who are both onsite managers were both the epitome of wonderful, welcoming inviting hosts. We found them to be professional, polite, informed and very hands on. The fact that Matt and Shane live onsite adds to the feeling...

I planned to stay at this lodge only for a week initially but extended my stay for a few weeks because it is quite handy to get to places as the tram station is only a minute away and shopping mall and restaurants are only minutes walk. Staff are very friendly, easily approachable, and are available on-site all the time....

Clean but all the basic stuff let it down. I paid $175 for 1 room with queen and bunk. No air con. No towels. Poor parking that you pay extra for. Also pay extra for a tv in your room. Terrible mattress, terrible pillows. 😮 Communal bathroom, kitchen and lounge also was horrible. Never again.

The owners were extremely unfriendly and bugged and we totally didn't feel welcome. We paid almost 200$ for a 2 bed room. It was dirty and has no bathroom in the room. The shared bathroom was dirty at all, most the toilets. Hairs were everywere and also the smell was bad in the whole building. It was uncomfortable to us...

We booked the hostel with no expectations but we were pretty surprised as the manager called us at 2pm and asked wether we arrive before or after 5pm since the reception closes at that time. Nevertheless, she greeted us more or less friendly and showed us our not-so-clean room. It smelled extremely weird in there and there was sand on...

I booked this last minute and price was ok. They asked for $50 cash deposit, though I only had 20 and they accepted that. No towels proved and cleanliness needs improving. Overall ok for quick and quiet enough stay
