Liked: It's situated just above the Steam Engine pub, which is both very nice and sometimes a little loud. Overall though I'd say it's totally worth it.

Disliked: Occaisional noise at night from the pub and lots of people in the rooms. Which was a great way to meet people, but not always conducive for getting ready in the morning or going to sleep at night.

Liked: Loved that theres a pub on the ground floor! Never had to wait to shower or use the bathroom or anything. Really close to a tube stop as well.

Disliked: Once one of te showers had no hot water and the other had no cold water, but only once. Rooms can be cramped with everyone's luggage everywhere.
