6/10 Good

Was ok, my friend and I had the twin room it’s very small/cramped. The bathroom was clean which was good, I didn’t see the kitchen but my friend says it was good condition and stocked with everything you need. I’d stay again but on my own

6/10 Good

Good location and reasonably clean rooms. However, the rooms were extremely tight and there was only one washroom/shower on each floor which were somewhat clean.

8/10 Very good

I enjoyed the building and the rooms and bathrooms were clean, however when you first walked in there was a faint smell of urine. This could've been from the bar but either way it was unpleasant. The floors were creaky but that's expected of an older building like this.

4/10 Fair

The internet was good and the staff were nice but unable to enforce rule violators. There were many inconveniences some that could be addressed easily. Not enough toilets. No hooks or mirrors in rooms which would help with bathroom crowding. Public space too small and often closed for use. Beds too low to put a suitcase under. Too small, old, creaky and loud floor boards.
