Once we found the guy who worked there he was useless. They even went into our room whilst we were out as we had complained to him that we had to...

Room hadn't been cleaned, rubbish in the bins, sinks dirty! Double/twin room? 1 set of bunk beds, and very unsteady at that, my partner is 6'2 and I'm 5'11, shared bathroom (vile) pubes everywhere, had no sleep due to the people above, and the floor boards, walls were so thin could hear conversation from opposite room. Strongly advise staying here!
