After arriving late on the first day, it seemed like our 2 twin rooms had been given away to other guests. We were downgraded to a 4 bed dorm, which wasn't too helpful after a long journey. We were, however, given breakfast free of charge for the rest of our weekend stay.
The doors to the two floors that we stayed on slammed very loudly throughout the night. Other guests weren't too keen on keeping the noise down with loud music in the mornings and at night. The social areas (especially on Friday and Saturday) meant there was a lot of noise as well.
Having said that, the rooms were clean and the showers/toilets were kept very tidy. The free wifi, which is only available in the lobby/social area, was a little unreliable and, if you're using it on a smartphone or tablet, you have to login after every time your device sleeps.
Breakfasts were simple, but we weren't paying for them. We were able to take moofins or bagels out with us alongside hot drinks or juice.
Despite a mix up when settling the bill (charging to the wrong card, forgetting the deposit had already been paid, etc) the staff were always very keen to help and made sure that you had no questions left unanswered.
For the money you pay, it was a good stay and I would recommend it, but don't expect too much and expect a lot of noise throughout the night. It would be worth contacting them if you're going to be later than expected for your arrival.
