    My stay was a good value for what I paid. My only complaint is that I requested to be in an all female dorm and was placed in a mixed dorm.

    Decent place to stay. Nice communal areas. Booked a private room for 3 although was put into a dorm as it wasn’t available although we had the dorm to ourselves. Bad smell from men’s toilets by our room. Comfy bed
