Liked: Free internet.

Disliked: There is this impression of and old and unkempt property, had to try two showers before finding one that worked. Even the staff saying that the reception stays closed only from midnight to 8 am, there was nobody at 8:45 am, when i checked out, and i lost my key deposit (five pounds per person). Also, i don't know what cleaning product they use, but we kept coughing from the first moment we arrived there.
