Will stay again.
A good place to stay, brilliant location, good price. I couldn't get the heating to work the first night and was cold! They control it centrally.

8/10 Very good

Upon arriving the lobby area looks quite inviting. It has couches to relax while you wait to check-in. Like every accomodation there are good things, and things that can be improved on. Free complimentary wi-fi was a very useful incentive, as was the nice interiors and room, and it was always warm inside. However, the things I'd critique would be that the pillows were too thin, there was no powerpoints near the beds in the shared 8 person dorms, and the towel surcharge. Other than that, it was affordable and serves a purpose for a short stay. The location is perfect and I wouldn't rule out staying in the future. Thanks guys!
