Rooms are 4-6 dorm rooms, we got a 4 bed dorm with bunks. The rooms are extremely small, not enough room for 2 rucksacks let alone 4, two of the three lockers inside the room where not accessable because they where wedged between the bunks and the wall.
Breakfast is included in the price, there are two different options on alternate mornings served by an extremely nice staff member.
The Rooms themselves are clean, although there was a creature living in one of the bed frames eating the wood! Because of the paper thin walls, both night and morning was extremely noisey with hearing other guests in neighbouring rooms along with their doors and lockers. On one attempt we spoke to the front desk who seemed offended that there would even be noise! Every night between 2am and 3am the guests on the floor above us would come in from their jobs (we found this out by someone who was staying here long term) like elephants. We where also woken up at 8.00am, after a sleepless night, to the guests bed above us being changed because he had checked out that morning.
There are four showers, all cleaned throughout the day as well as the toilet and sinks.
There is free wifi across building as well as three computers in reception. When wanting to go on a trip, the staff where helpful in giving directions.
Overall it was quite overpriced and promised so much
