I took 40ish students (16-20yrs) in April, they were spread over dorm like rooms with 6/8 beds (predominantly bunks) pretty much had the whole place, there is also smaller other self contained rooms at the top of the premises, this was ideal for staff.
The ground floor had a large common area with computer/Internet connection/Wi-Fi/TV/games etc... which were put to good use, plenty of seating and sofas, this was perfect for our group to keep contained, adjoining this is a large communal kitchen with all relevant amenities, I/we easily catered a cooked breakfast for group.
As with this type of accommodation you need to be respectful of others and clean/tidy away.
