First time writing a review, never thought I ever would, but simply 40 Berkeley is that bad I feel I owe it to society to warn you. I'll start with the good- the little older receptionist was very pleasant and welcoming, the reception itself is modern and clean with a cute popcorn machine and movie room. The bad- no aircon in the rooms, they are so hot and humid, almost unbearable. The value for money is also terrible, box room, literally just a dorm bed and a creaky old wardrobe. They say breakfast is included, but what they don't warn you off is that it is basically prison food, standard breakfast slop, rubber eggs, bacon and sausages that could be used as a blunt object to harm someone they were that hard. I stayed for two nights and on both occasions I used the shared bathrooms there was ants and Beatles crawling around the showers and toilets. overall 1/10, I'll sleep rough before I stay here again but like I said if you like salted popcorn, wobbly pool tables and a movie room then reception is the place for you, I wouldnt let my dog sleep in the rooms.
