    PROS: Staff was awesome, location was very central, breakfast had hot items. CONS: No bed curtains for some reason, place is on 4th floor, homeless guy tried to break in, showers were broken and never got hot.

    Facility was fine. The open area walking in made a good atmosphere for studying. The kitchen is a bit small so trying to get breakfast when everyone else is made it virtually impossible to get any food. The beds were nice, curtain gave good block from lights. Only other thing would be that I had an infestation of bed bugs during my stay. I did not realize it until I got home.

    Bedbug infestation! Stay away at all costs! We stayed two nights and have the worst bites all over. The bugs also crawled into our luggage, which are stored on cupboards on the floor, so they've now come back with us. We called up to complain and they immediately gave us a refund without asking for evidence. They were clearly well aware of the bedbug problem while we were staying there as this is only two days after our stay. The refund will not cover the £400 fumigation treatment now required.
