I stayed here with friends for a couple of nights two weeks ago. Our room was narrow but decent with comfy beds and a desk and a chest of draws. It was clean as were the bathroom facilities which were pretty good. The staff were friendly and helpful. This place does not have a 'hostel' atmosphere simply because it isn't a hostel! It's more like uni dorms. I feel we got our money's worth.
What I liked about the place was that:
- It was close to the attractions.
-In a safe area and each room you could lock. Most of the people we encountered in the hallway were also students - saw no dodgy characters.
- You get free access to the health centre which has a large, well equipped gym and a 25 metre pool.
What I disliked:
-There were only 3 computers which got very busy and no wifi.
Overall, though, a very good stay.
