Hi, I don't think they provide kettles in the bedrooms but there are coffee-making facilities on the basement floor near the washing machines.

"Go elsewhere - but try to get a room on the back side if you can rather than facing the street, it is very loud."
"Book with time if you want a double bed"
"Although they only sell 6-bed for dormitory, they actually have both 4-bed and 6-bed rooms."
"The rooms at the front can get noisy with traffic."
"Rooms at the front are quite noisy as road outside is busy although we slept well anyway."
