Rafal, au1 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Fabulous :-)
Stayed here for 3 nights, it was so lovely! Crisp clean sheets, nice kitchen, very social - as in people were friendly and chatty, liked the lights being turned down for quiet times in the evenings too. Cathy was awesome on Reception! Perfectly situated, great WiFi - sadly not available in the room but the communal area was great where you could get it. Air con was fab and having own fridge and bathroom in the dorm was such a bonus! Would 100% recommend.
