  • Plumbing in the shower in very poor condition. The water pressure is completely inadequate that would have the opportunity to take a shower. So you can assume that the shower is not there.

  • Good location with helpful staff. Extra services available such as towel hire and laundry. Nice common room and game room. The bathroom is clean but a bit impractical, with the urinals just next to the only two sinks, no sockets for shaver (pretty common in the uk...) and no dry area in the shower cabin.

  • Our room was very comfortable and wide. We had a kitchen for ourselves. Besides we had tea & coffee courtesy of Backpackers. We thank them for this gesture.

  • We ran out of hot water while bathing. And we had to use the 4th floor toilets. I got some bites on my skin from sleeping on the mattress. But I really appreciate how quickly the staff responded to our needs. They were really friendly, efficient and helpful.
