    Avoid if you value sleep

    Dreadful place. Bare walls and floors, the absence of soft furnishings etc meant that it was noisy above my room, in the corridor and next door up to midnight and from 6am next day. Rooms are like clean and tidy cells with not one spare socket or seat other than a tiny stool. Staff were very helpful - not their fault that the place is not fit to be on a hotel website. Vastly overpriced for what's on offer. Like been in a playground.

    Easily accessible by bus and clean. Smaller rooms. Shared washrooms with others (2 per floor) made for busier mornings.

    Private rooms are all facing a very busy main road. Its very noisy and hot weather. But have to keep window close.

    It was a spot difficult to locate even with google maps. There is no elevator and there are very few toilets and washrooms for the number of people using it. There is no wifi in the rooms which was annoying. I wouldn’t recommend it.

    Helpful staff, somewhat convenient location, good breakfast. Only drawback, internet reception went out once you got past the first two floors. Perhaps they did this because those staying in the dormitory would have to listen to any alarms or alerts going off coming from cellphones.
