It is value for money and the location is strategic


Fulfils your requirements, it's not a hostel but rather a room for rent, kitchen and showers good, free wifi in room good bed comfy enough. I didn't like the long walks to the room through the corridors, ventilation was too hot.


My door wouldn't lock from the outside using the key. The place really is filthy. The carpets look old and are very dirty.

Room was very clean and spacious. However the fridges smelt awful and looked dirty.


So many kitchens, and separate bathrooms. best value single occupant rooms going.
