Liked: It suits the modern budget city traveller. Everything is well organised. Each bed has two power outlets and a personal nightlight, as well as a bit of a screen for some privacy. The bathrooms are sensibly laid out and easy to keep clean. Wifi is free and always works. I have stayed here several times before and found it excellent value for money.

Disliked: In the past, I have been unlucky with people making noise outside the window. You don't here the bar downstairs, but when people hang out outside, you can sometimes hear that in the rooms. It's unpredictable though.
