A missed train resulted in my recently having to find emergency accomodation, and the Westend turned out to be it.

Amongst the things I went through with my $85 "double ensuite":

There was no bathroom anywhere on my floor except for a locked 'private bathroom'. I was on a top floor and had to travel to the second floor every time I had to go. The toilets are unisex, and did result in an experience where a cute blonde in little shorts came out of a cubicle when i was washing my hands.

A similar situation existed with the showers - there seems to be only 3 available for the entire building. A fourth one has been vandalised.

My room had no TV, radio, coffee making facilities, bedside lamp or towel. A $10 deposit is required for the towel. This is unheard of for a $85 room.

No breakfast is available.

This may be OK for a $25 domitory,these are alternate rates given for group bookings, but persons seeking a single room are well advised to go elsewhere.
