The building is lovely and the communal areas fine (an especially comfortable lounge with plenty to read). Unfortunately the carpets on the stairs are worn, the toilet and shower facilities working but very dated (taps only run when you are pressing on them making it difficult to wash your hands). Our room was very stuffy the window being non openable, ventilation being provided by a Velux style window in the ceiling, opened by climbing on one of the top bunks and probably of little use with rain and the wind in the wrong direction. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful.
