  • Lockers are too small to fit anything sizable. AC isn't room sensitive and so when you cram 12 people in a room, it gets overwhelmingly hot. It was so hot that I couldn't sleep. It might seem nice in the rest of the building or even your room when you first get there but it will go nuclear overnight. Windows are also paper thin. Lets in every noise imaginable. Conversations below the building float into your ear while you're tucked into your bed. I don't recommend it.

  • Friendly Staff. My room did not have a window and was too hot. But still, the rooftop is great and the people too.

  • Staff at reception were highly efficient and despite pressure always ready to nasser and help. John, attenting to the Breakfast session had a particularly joyous way to loosen up the athmosphere in the dining lounge.

  • Perfect. I stayed for about a week, staff is constantly circulating to keep the place clean and look after all the tenants. At no time did I (24/M) feel unsafe or uncomfortable, although I'd bring a padlock to lock away valuables in the lockers during the day. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Kitchen functional with all lots of crockery and cutlery to use.

  • Upon arrival, was initially put off by the no shoe policy. But instantly appreciated it because of the cleanliness and the welcoming common area with the endless amount of channels on the TV. Did not care for an overtly flirtatious and argumentative, 19 year old employee, who hit on every female who walked in. His attempts at hospitality quickly crossed the line of professionalism. Lack of paper towels and trash cans in bathrooms was inconvenient. Also, couldn't eat anywhere except for kitchen.
