After reading the bad reviews on here, I prepared for the worst (not being able to afford any other hotel- am a student) but it was really not so bad.
The staff were friendly, though we didn't see them other than when checking in. The cleaner-girl was lovely. She made our breakfasts (very nice) in the mornings. It was clean though some things (taps, lights) weren't working occasionally. The showers were very nice too.
In the evenings it was very noise but we'd just come back from Japan and so we were both very jet-lagged, so we weren't bothered too much.
I think the worst thing was how far it was from the station. With luggage it's really quite bad (a lot further than it says on the site).
Also, the area isn't the safest place in the world but it was an eye opener for my Japanese boyfriend who previously thought England was full of gentlemen and Mary Poppins types!!!
All in all it was a nice stay and I would stay there again.
