Liked: Design of bar and café, wifi, amount of bathroom facilities, lockers, clean and new beds that allow privacy (I especially liked the lamp and the plug), sink in room

Disliked: Location for included breakfast downstairs felt "third class" and uncomfortable compared to cafe upatairs, room without window or airing possibility (and with 8 people in it, it starts to get really hot and smelly at some point), toilets not cleaned enough, possibility to eat own food/kitchen with fridges (Its still a hostel, students don't have the money to buy overpriced meals every time they feel hungry)

Dear Julie,

Thank you for all your feedback. I am disappointed that you felt "third class" and uncomfortable downstairs at breakfast. We need to keep both cafes separate and as we have large numbers for inclusive breakfast the space upstairs is inadequate. Housekeeping has a notice in each bathroom to contact reception if you need your bathroom cleaned again, perhaps on your next visit you can check this and breakfast out. Kind regards Maureen Meegan

Liked: reception staff friendly and helpful. good beds...

Disliked: only ONE toilet per floor, with about 30 rooms. all the toilets and showers are on one floor - so if you wake up at 3 a.m. and have to puke or piss, you better hope no one is using that one toilet because you might have to travel several floors to get to an available toilet. the showers are nice but there is no shelf or bench and only ONE hook, so you have to put your things on the (wet) floor. that security guard is unfriendly and seems almost menacing, the way he just stands around watching everybody. and as I said earlier, how can you have a hostel that restricts food to its restaurants?
