I needed cheap accommodation at the drop of a hat and this hotel done just the job. In all honesty my expectations were not great after reading the most recent reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious, a little dated but clean, comfortable and very reasonably priced for a hotel of this location. I requested a later... More

Got no sleep at all as the guest/druggies above us kept us wake untill 5 am by shouting, fighting, arguing and dragging furniture. People complained to security to which it took several warnings, the police and a police dog to escort them off the premises. My niece also said her room key fitted her brothers door who was in the... More

Unless you are forewarned, you may believe this is a regular hotel. It may help you to be advised the Dormy is in fact hostel accommodation, used by homeless people in the city. If you book your stay aware of this you may have less of a shock than many reviewers here experienced. I work voluntarily with homeless people in... More

Well what can I say....UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES STAY HERE! It's vile, we were given a family room with a shower and no toilet (that's across the corridor) if your a family the last thing you want to see is a family member in the shower cubicle! The bed sheets I don't think they were changed since the previous occupants, there... More

Probably the worst nights sleep I have ever had. The room was disgusting, the decor and furniture have so obviously not been updated for YEARS, there was a stale smell as soon as you reached the top of the stairs. The toilets were down the corridor and pretty dingy, Iv traveled a lot and have stayed in hostels that have... More

This must be the worst hotel in the world, next door to a homeless hostel which you get regular visits from people from there asking and begging for cigarettes and money. The rooms are terrible i will just say a dog kennel would be cleaner and more higeinic without any mice. The meals all i will say is that the... More

I would not recommend this place particularly for families with children. We found it so terrible we did not bother to stay the night and left soon after checking in. It was smelly and very smoky despite clear signs stating it was a smoke free hotel. Our family suite was a dingy cold room with a shower cubicle in the... More
