I only stayed here for a day, but the staff was amazingly friendly (Apart from one fella who made me feel incredibly stupid for asking something.

Reviewed 27 July 2015

Overall the place is OK. A Good place for a student budget, it needs more showers in each floor. The breakfast was good and lovely. However, there should be a locker per bed nor per bunk bed. Another thing that would be useful is tiny curtains in each bunk bed.
