It says that cleanliness and safety are at the highest standard - absolutely not. It was so dirty!! The first room we booked, a private double, was made up of a single bed and a single bunk bed. All the beds sagged in the middle and we were required to make our own beds. In the process of making the bed we noticed that there were huge wet patches on the floor and a USED CONDOM. Upon telling this to the staff they upgraded us to their best room (the staff did deal very well with this and we're nice and apologetic). Immediatly we noticed crumbs in the bed and a cupcake wrapper on the floor. While it was definatelt an upgrade there was a DISGUSTING smell that came from the bathroom every now and then which made us dry wretch. In so far as safety goes the doors have tiny flimsy locks on them. They have a staff member at reception the whole time which helps but there's a back door that's open to the back car park which anybody an access during the day. It advertises that it is 'new'' but it's in an old house with old and cheap furniture. The bed we ended up sleeping in had painful springs across it. The couch was hard and uncomfortable. They DO have good Internet and good digital entertainment available. Pay the extra money to stay at a hotel.
