Hey it might be cheap but I would rather have clean every time. On arrival I went up to the room and it had not been cleaned since the previous guest had moved out. This included dirty sheets and there is no excuse for this! Don't be disappointed, stay elsewhere.

Our room was also pretty clean and we had no problems with...

My apartment was clean and there were NO cockroaches. It is backpacker accommodation...

I moved from Melbourne to Brisbane for work and moved in to the Balhouse Apartments for a month and stayed for a couple of years. The friendliness of management, and the ease of living there made moving on difficult. The accomodation is close to the train station (5 mins), close to the city (20 mins walk), close to an Olympic...
