It depends what you want I suppose, but even £39 was to steep for this flea pit. They also close the doors and lock you out by about midnight so if you don't check in early enough, tough! I had to pay an extra £25 to get a taxi just to pick up the key. It was explained to me... More

To say that this place is a [--] would be an insult to faeces and orifices everywhere.
