I stayed four four nights in late March 2013; stayed in a large room with about 5 bunkbeds. The room was tired looking and there wasn't a lot of space to store your things.
The communal showers and toilets seemed to be cleaned regularly but the self-catering kitchen area was not cleaned very often and often had rubbish overflowing from the bins. The kitchen is short of bowls and cooking pans and other items, so it's a bit of hunt to find all the tools you need to cook properly.
I found the place quite noisy after lights-out, with noise from nearby rooms and sounds from ventilation fans filtering through and disturbing sleep.
The lounge is nice and so is the dining area (for those paying for meals) - both have a more modern, update look - these are the only places on the site that really appear to have been kept up to date.
I didn't find the reception staff member who greeted me very friendly or helpful. I suppose it depends on who is working when, but overall the place does not give off a friendly feel from staff.
I only paid £10-£13 per night, so I suppose you "get what you pay for". At least the linens and the bathroom and showers were clean.
