Latest Review

" The keys did not fit the lockers, the staff did not do anything to help. Someone had slept in the bunk assigned to us, and soiled the sheets. Only after asking multiple times was only the blanket replaced, and not even the sheet. On returning in the night, some other drunk person was passed out in our bunk, we had to look for another one by ourselves. Aircon did not work, entire dorm smelled like sweat and socks. "
