Liked: the hotel is as good as it was described. the room was not big, but sufficient to stay. everything is neat, tidy, and clean. the location is really good, as it is close to the metro station, which connects the main lines. the price is also quite nice. i enjoyed the stay very much.

Disliked: maybe the room could have been a little bit bigger.

Liked: It was clean and felt very safe, helpful staff and free access to computers and wifi. Close to metro but not the beach (15min walk). The pool on the roof was simply awesome and perfect for an early morning swim :D

Disliked: The distance from the beach, everything else was great

Disliked: The walls are not the best and if you have some redneck neighbor that makes random thumping noise that will all be heard properly through the wall... but that's not something too bad :)

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!
