Liked: very quiet, very comfortable beds, close to metro and bus station, pool area made up for the distance from the beach.

Disliked: felt that it was in a dodgy area of the city made us not want to go out at night, definitely wouldnt want to go out on your own, very far from the beach.

Liked: The room was clean and stylish, had a safe box and the black out curtains meant I had the best few nights sleep I had ever had in a while! It's also easy to get to the city centre and the beaches from the residence, and the staff and really friendly and helpful with directing you to places. The swimming pool was lovely with sun beds - good for a morning swim and tanning! It's quiet as well, so perfect for couples and even groups of friends. Would really recommend this place as it's definitely value for money and felt more like a hotel than a student residence! Really wish there were more hostels like this around the world.

Disliked: Nothing really...it's next to a funeral parlour? haha

Liked: Friendly helpful staff, great price and facilities. Location is ok as access to the rail station is within 3min walking distance. 24hr staff very knowledgeable with good language skills. Great to have access to to rooftop terrace and pool facilities, also the cookig facilities were reasonable. Thanks for a great stay as I found the value for money was very good :)

Disliked: Poor drainage from the shower and towels not changed for 4 day duration stay affected my cleanliness rating but loved the stay none the less. Thanks melon district :)

Liked: Refreshingly modern, which is pretty unusual in this price range. The rooftop seating area and pool was a great feature, It was never too busy either.

Disliked: The shared kitchens needed opening windows - this was just too clinical. Perhaps having a couple of seating / lounge areas in the complex for the travelers staying over would really make this place excellent. I understand that free towels are expensive for hotels to wash - but new towels every 6 days unless you pay extra is not good!

Liked: Not much at all.

Disliked: I hate this place. Don't go there. It's cold, has no vibe, is in a terrible area and the staff are rude. Rooms are tiny, towels are not replaced, shared kitchen is disgusting and not sufficiently equipped (doesn't even have knifes for cutting food) and it is in an awful location (situated opposite a funeral parlor that has grieving families out the front of it at all hours of the day).

Liked: Terrace at the roof with pool and amazing view of the city. Very clean. Close to metro and nightbus. 15min walk to the beach. Free internet/computers.

Disliked: Don't expect to do much cocking in the room (not enough equipment). The staff doesn't know so much about things going on in the city. Also our booking had got lost in the system, however the staff sorted if out without making a fuzz.
