Liked: Very clean. Nice to have sink in room. Friendly and helpful staff.

Disliked: They have 2 locations, quite far apart. Yet the booking did not indicate which building to go to upon arrival, which is confusing and could be a big hassle for folks (like us) who didn't have a car.

Liked: Clean

Disliked: Booked a double room but were taken to the other location and got a twin room instead, then were told there are no double room available, which we felt quite unhappy as we didn't get what we booked. If the double room is not available, then it should not appear in the website.

Liked: The second house isn't that far from the centre of town, and it's a nice building with well-equipped kitchens. Beds are great - nice and soft.

Disliked: It's admittedly a bit of a walk, and there aren't that many bathrooms for the basement rooms.
