Liked: I was unexpectedly upgraded to a sanctuary dorm free of charge. The room (4 bed) was lovely and clean. You could hear a little bit of Scary Canary (the bar next door) until about 11pm, but nothing else after that.

Disliked: The room I was in had an air conduct which let a lot of light into the room and being in the top bunk directly next to the door could be a problem for those who are light sleepers - luckily I had an eye mask which helped a great deal!
