Travelled with group
Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness
Room did not look like the pictures and was very small with one person living in the room for the past two months who was quite disruptive (waking others at 4 am etc). At one point I was told by another person renting a bed in the room that a number of people had been in the room earlier that day when we were out that had not paid to stay in the room.
