    Facilities limited. Only 2 women's toilets for the whole hostel, only 1 bedroom light, so when someone wanted to go to bed at 10 they turned out the main light and that was it for everyone in the room. communal space = 2 settees in reception/ couple of tables in the kitchen. No proper cooker, just 2 ring hob. Policy to take either passport or driving licence number, but as UK resident not legal req: what if not with you? staff had no answer. key deposit; had to ask for receipt for this!
