Good for the price
"For the price it’s really good, a private en suite room for less than £25 is great. Having a fan in the room was nice as it was a warm night. Was quiet and genuinely felt safe. I’d recommend it to anyone that’s on a budget and needs somewhere safe to sleep. I stayed in the twin bunk bed room."

Loud and not nice showers

Shower room was too small
"Overall was ok. The room was small for 9 people. Three level bunker bed was kinda off. The shower room was clean but no place to hang your clothes. So I suppose you either let your clothes wet from the shower or get naked before going into the shower room (just kidding)."
