This is a University. When you book accommodations with the word University in the title, that should give you a big hint. That being said, our accommodations were that of a dorm room. We are a fairly young couple so two twin beds, desk, tv, internet access fit us perfectly, especially since all we needed was a place to sleep. The university is located in the middle of the "suburbs" so you don't get all the urban activity. You do get the occasional rowdiness from students, so be prepared for that.
The room was rather small, just big enough to hold said amenities. Very short walk to the bus stop, market, and Chinese take away.
Our train from London was delayed, therefore we missed the ferry and arrived a day later, on a Sunday where regular staff were not working. We sent them an email to notify them of our delay and they promptly replied to tell us the key would be left with the security guard. We were skeptical, but we arrived, the security guard was expecting us. That was a pleasant surprise.
If you are looking for quaint, inexpensive, plain accommodations, this is perfect. Think like this: Staying here lets you save money for more Guinness and Jameson.
