I know its cheap to stay here and its budget accommodation but i was a little annoyed with this place. When we arrived it was late at night so we collected our key from a key safe and entered. The downstairs area looked really nice so we thought we had got a right deal before we found our room. We hud to lug our bags up a couple flights of stairs to find our room and then we did it was a box with a bunk bed, a wooden built in wardrobe and dresser and metal lockers. We had requested a double bed which there was, but it had a single bed above it.
Anyway it was late we didnt care and we were only staying here a night, so we made up our bed and went to use the bathroom (another box with a shower you could not stand underneath and a toilet and sink). There was no light! Its a good job i knew the person i was sharing a room with as i had to leave the door open. For anyone staying there a bit longer this could get uncomfortable.
Anyway i had the worse night sleep because the bed made a racket everytime you moved, a nearby church chimes every hour and half hour and the curtains do not cover the window. Then if you need the toilet in the middle of the night you have to climb over one another then pee in the dark as you cant turn a light on.
In the morning we went to check out and this is the first time we saw someone (an older guy working behind the desk). They didnt say hello picked up the phone dialed and started talking to someone. We just dropped our key in the box and left as we got bored standing around.
If you are looking for somewhere with clean sheets and is reasonably cheap to stay for one night then i would stay here. If you want more than that look elsewhere. We were just so dissapointed as the people we spoke to on the phone were lovely and there customer service was excellent.
