6/10 Good

The floor and externals of the mini fridge were filthy. There were still cakes of soap in the shower from previous occupants. It's budget accommodation so I don't expect the highest quality facilities, but I do expect basic hygiene standards which were not even close to being met.

So So
It was a handy location, however the rooms are very dated. At least renew the Air-conditioning units as they are very noisy. The on-site Guest kitchen needs to be regularly cleaned.
