Liked: Good location

Disliked: The entire property needs a full refurbishment from top to bottom. Old and broken sinks, bank beds, dirty dining table and everything old fashioned and out dated. Near and inside The kitchen area there is a very bad smell of garbage and rotten foot. The cooker is dirty and needs a very good deep clean with sgrassatore. WiFi is not accessible from top floors. Highgene is at a low level everywhere. The shower rooms are not cleaned regularly and hot water is not available at all times. Lockers for personal belongings are not offered to everyone and the bedrooms there is not enough space for 4 people. No wardrobes or lockers to store your clothes or belongings. The sanitary authority in uk should have a look at this place.

Liked: Shower door held on by tape. Shower pole broken so you have to hold it while you wash. Mattress awful. Short & curlies everywhere - including the sink I was trying to brush my teeth in. Smells like wet dog. All it needs is a make over and a cleaner but they clearly have no intent to clean it up while they have people willing to put up with it. The shower pole would cost £10 to replace but it's been like that for at least a year - I booked again by accident I'd never have gone back intentionally.

Disliked: Standard of cleanliness is awful and compared to the other choices in Plymouth it is very basic.
