A group of us booked in here for a cheap city break. Location is great, right behind the train station and also on the sea court park and ride route. Reception staff are friendly and there is a luggage room to leave your bags until check in. Lobby is nice, full of comfy sofas and they have somewhere where you can get a cup of tea which was good.
Abit disappointed with the room. I under its a hostel but I wasn't expecting to make our own beds! Also the design of the bunk beds make it really difficult to get into the top one so I ended up dragging the mattress onto the floor and sleeping there.
Nice surprise to find our room was ensuite, a not so nice surprise was what we found in the toilet!
We felt that our room hadn't been cleaned for a few days as it smelt quite strongly of feet so we had to crack the window open and spray perfume to try and unmask the smell!
The biggest negative for me was that there didn't seem to be any staff/ security working at night.
We are all quite young and like to party but when we returned we made sure we didn't disturb the guests. However a big group came in after us ( about 3-4 am) and were banging on the front door ( too drunk to work out you have to open it with your room card) and then once they finally managed to get in they ran up and down our corridor screaming and fighting. For about an hour.
Felt quite angry about this as I bet it woke other guests too.
To add insult we then had to strip our beds in the morning and then I paid a fiver for one piece of bacon, a sausage and a hash brown.
I think my review is quite jaded by my lack of sleep and for a basic no thrills stay it was fine, just really think they need to consider night time staff
