I stayed in Urban Central for 3 and half months, Met lots of nice people there. Depends on which staff member you get on how helpful they are. All dorms are 4 bed which is good, good size locker, rooms are basic but clean and well sized. Bathrooms need to be cleaned more regularly. Communal areas are not what they are advertised to be - no sofas/chairs at tv area? Kitchen really lets this place down big time - no room to move even for a few people never mind the amount of people who stay here, kitchen always very dirty with no clean dishes, only ever a couple of hobs working at a time, always a que to use the kitchen and fridges are useless and they are at about 10 oC so your food goes off after a day!
