Liked: Really clean and nice decorated. Good prices for drinks. Cool offers for the guests. Most of the staff was really cool and nice to us. Great towels and bathrooms.

Disliked: The floor is kind of noisy, so it's hard to walk into the room and move without annoying everyone.Wouldn't book a bed next to the door again, especially when a couple books two beds so much time in advance it would be nice to put them somewhere in the corner and not the first two beds when someone comes in, you are awake right away every single time. The mattresses are not very good, you can feel every single spring of the mattress. I missed curtains at the bed for more privacy and to keep the light out of your eyes. The worst thing was, that some unfriendly guy of the staff slept in our room and freaked out at 3.30 in the middle of the night because someones phone was ringing. Because of that he was slamming the door and yelling at the guy with the phone. He woke the whole room up, because he is obviously crazy and don't know how to act in a dorm, even he is working there. Embarrassing. That was actually our only bad experience there.

Hi
Thank you for your comments and rating.
We did speak to the guys, the morning after about the noise in the room, and to remind them they were sharing a dormitory room with other guest and to be more considerate.

Hi

We are looking at ways of improving the pressure of water to a couple of the showers, they seems to have problems when everyone is showering at the same time.

Liked: It was really clean an on a top location. Cheap breakfast available. A good place to stay. Would go there again.

Disliked: When I booked the bed were quite expensive. The floors and the doors were quite noisy. The shower had a very low pressure, you need very long to take a shower, thats why the shower is often busy.

hi
Thank you for your rating and comments..

We are installing a new boiler in the next few months, which will hopefully improve the pressure in some of the showers.
The problem, is not always with the showers, just sometimes if everyone is having a shower at the same time. This is what we are hoping the new boiler will help with the water pressure
