Liked: The beds were comfortable, and the bunks didn't squeak which is always important in dorm rooms! There were lots of power points to charge phones and things. The kitchen had enough equipment so that even during the busy peak periods I had what I needed to cook.

Disliked: Lockers in the rooms would be nice, also the roll-out baskets under the bed were useful for putting stuff in but there were only two in my 6-bed dorm.

03 August 2014 Jackie would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful,the bed was comfy

Disliked: Everything was on a self timer. Which would be fine, except the timings were random and not good. Like the shower would work for about 10 seconds each time the button was pressed, the light in the bathroom was on a motion sensor.. which didn't detect you in the shower, so it was a constant battle to keep both the light and the shower on at the same time. The taps in the kitchen made it really difficult to wash dishes, as they needed to be held on with one hand. My room was extremely cramped as well.

Liked: I found the staff to be wonderful--friendly and helpful! There are great kitchen facilities and multiple communal areas. Also, it is a good location.

Disliked: The heating was minimum only kicking on during certain night hours with the rooms and common area going back to freezing by morning. Also, the hot water was inconsistent and both bathrooms and the bedrooms were not kept up well.
