Comfortable stay for budget minded travellers

All good, I did feel some bed bugs but other than that all was good. Great and friendly reception service and a bonus drink voucher on check-in! The only thing I wish they did not close the rooftop area at night as it is the only comfortable and quiet place to sit down and work on computer. Have not had a chance to check out the new TV room.
