    I stayed for 3 nights. My 6 bed room didn't have any windows or lockers; there were just 3 bunk beds and a chair. It was quite nice to have the room just for myself for two nights, though. The building seems to be quite...More

    Sorry your stay was not up to your expectations. The reason we have lockers outside the rooms rather than in the rooms is because we have them monitored on security camera, which we cant do for privacy reasons in the rooms. We really are sorry...More

    It has got high ceiling rooms, feels spacious. Kitchen is large. Wifi is good but sometimes doesn't work in rooms but works well in shared areas. It is very close to Little India - food choices, has a subway next door.
