Receptionist was a bit rude, said they nearly gave away our rooms because we didn’t let them know we were checking in the following morning. Cleaner closed the toilet and shower, upon asking when it should be open she shrugged and said “closed” pointing at the sign and then again myself and 2 other guests sort of jus looked at her confused and she just said “closed”. Cold showers, broken hooks, children running rampant from school bookings. Reception didn’t know if there was a second bathroom??

Very old college dorm vibe, liked the showers that were open but most were under construction, bathroom locks didn’t work great, lots of mazelike hallways and bed that go three high

The dorm room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The showers are very awkward but apart from that it was lovely.
