Mama Shelter was a really nice place to stay - the staff were all *incredibly* kind, courteous, and easy to chat with, especially at check-in, as the man who helped check me in gave me really great recommendations and just seemed super kind. It was a nice touch, as well, to give guests discounts/coupons at the downstairs restaurant and downstairs bar/rooftop bar (though I only tried the restaurant - which was fantastic). The bed was very comfy. I really liked the neighborhood - it reminded me of New York with a nice, walkable city feel to it. Everything was very clean, though I wouldn't expect perfection - it seemed like a very young crowd there and vibrant place, so there was some wear and tear (spills on the carpet), which was no biggie, but just something to note for anyone who wants things more 4-star.

Bars on the top and bottom floors play extremely loud music on the weekends until 2-4am. There are no rooms in the hotel that aren’t impacted by this, we were unable to sleep until the bars closed. If you plan on being out until that time then you might be alright. The staff / manager were very friendly / tried their best to help us but ultimately there wasn’t anything they could do. We had to cancel our last night at the hotel and go somewhere else.

Lovely hotel, really cool design, storage in the room would suit 1-2 nights, not a full week, only hanging space for a few things, no cupboards. Super fantastic staff, very helpful and polite... the only main issue i would complain about is the noise levels. Paper thin walls I could hear the neighbouring room to their every word. Granted my neighbour was playing a computer game, and shouting at the tv lol. Also weirdly 4 floors high i could hear street noise really clearly - I think via a vent in the wall, and then neighbouring or the rooftop club the music was incredibly loud to early hours, got to listen to the entire Kanye West best hits on Saturday night, from my bed, at about 1:45am.

I liked that they had everything there from a rooftop bar to an inside bar and restaurant. I didn't like that the rooftop bar was so packed that it was hard to get a drink. It seems like the bar is open to the public. Other than that the hotel is very cool.
