Liked: It was downtown

Disliked: the wifi was terrible and rarely worked. Half the time you ran out of hot water. There was no soap, you had to buy a towel, the rooms were a shoebox, no place to hang your clothes. Used condom on the stairs, too many stairs to get to your room and the office, no lift.

Liked: leaving it

Disliked: walking into the strand there were wine botttles on the footstep. i was put on the 6th floor with no elevator. no facilities in the rooms. extremely loud cinema or something like it in a very close proximity, that kept me up for most of the night. when looking out of the window there was a semi balcony which was covered with alcohol bottles. when trying to check out 2 days early was told by staff i had to wait an hour and a half until the manager came. was not grated a refund for the days i did not stay there that were booked through hostelbookers.. wifi only worked on my mobile while in reception. should be advertised as a hostel rather than a hotel.
