Liked: Location was good and facilities tidy. The big kitchen was comfortable. Staff was friendly too.

Disliked: Very bad air in the room after night. When I went to a toilet and came back, air in the room was so bad that I was almost about to vomit! Not easy to make new friends as many people stay only one night and then continue somewhere else.
