Would have been better if the single duvets actually fitted the single bed and the pillows had been more comfortable. Bathroom maintenance could have been better too as the taps on the bathroom sinks didn't work, apart from that you pay for what you get and it was ideal for just sticking the head down for the night.

My main complain is about facilities. There is no sound insulation, floor are squeaky - you hear every step your neighbour makes. Everything else is great.


My only complaint would be about the loud and squeaky floors in building #7, flat 7. I was able to track everyones movements in the flat by where they stepped tgroughout my stay.
