Liked: the first night I stayed in a dorm on the first floor immediately above loco bar and was kept up until 4am by the loud music. I could literally feel the vibrations through my (flat) pillow. After that the amazing girl at reception moved me to a 6 bed ensuite on the third floor where I slept like a baby for my remaining three nights. The kitchen was a good size, clean and tidy. Free wifi on the ground floor 7am - 7pm

Disliked: Impossible to sleep on the first floor because of the noise coming from loco bar

Liked: terribly rude staff. They cut off water in the middle of a shower and it took a while for it to turn back on. The locker under my bed was broken and they told me to "deal with it." I was in a full room with all the lockers being used. I would never stay there again nor would I reccomend it to anyone else.

Disliked: The staff was terrible!

Liked: Since it is so large, it had vacancy when others were full.

Disliked: It's definitely geared toward a young, party crowd. I did not need to see the man in a thong that is apparently their latest marketing photo and plastered on every door. The halls were dirty. The kitchen was difficult to find and did not make me want to cook there.
