Booked this last minute for 1 night. We were on the top floor, but could literally feel the music coming from the club next door until 2:30 AM on a Wednesday night. There were two outlets in the 6-bed room. The building is both labyrinthine and clearly still undergoing renovations. Kitchen was small, windowless, and hard to find. There was some kind of leak coming from under/inside the bathroom into the bedroom carpet. Room was otherwise clean. Staff were very friendly and clearly hardworking.

The Dawson Hotel is brand new, at this time there are no facilities other than the rooms (they may come later). It’s well run, nice bathrooms and great showers and plenty of hot water. Crisp white sheets and very clean. It’s off a street where there are party revellers so there is some people and disco noise at night (for me it was ok) and it’s in a great location. A little more expensive than the competition but I felt it was worth it.

Facilities don't exist. No kettle or microwave, bare basics. Place is still under construction, half the place is a building site. The staff were absolutely lovely,really nice and wouldn't fault them. Having long term residents and short term stays in the same dorm doesn't work. completely incompatible and unfair on both. Seems the place has been opened to rent put rooms to pay for the work. Abysmal. Value for money, I don't know. Similar priced places at least have a kettle.
