    They have very good parties and activities every day. The location is awesome! There's a pub/restaurant inside with good beer and meals. The only downside is that you have to pay for the WiFi and for the breakfast (if you want).

    Been here a month it's that fun - also special mention to Sophie from Jobsearch for finding me two different jobs despite my complete lack of skills/experience, she's that good. Sad to be leaving in a week's time.
