Liked: Clean and enormous clean kitchen. Personal plug sockets for all your devices. Personal bedside light.

Disliked: Quite far away from town if you are walking. When someone moved out of the 4 bed dorm room, they threw out my receipts, travel itinerary, tickets and medication as they viewed it as trash in a locker. Didnt seem too concerned about how seriously upset i was. Maybe they should number lockers to beds. The person who left wasnt even above or next to me... No impressed.

Liked: Staff were very helpful and willing to let me store luggage for three days AFTER I had checked out, for free.

Disliked: My room smelt like feet really bad when I first checked in, after a couple hours of leaving the window open it was fine.

Liked: Excellent facilities. Clean and tidy, friendly staff.

Disliked: Front desk didn't open on time which meant I had to carry a rented blanket with me all day (on a bus tour) and return it that night, which was an inconvenience.
