2/10 Poor

Shared toilets and showers were always filthy, without graphic detail people don’t clean up after themselves, showers didn’t always flow. Kitchen was cluttered with too many utensils, pots and pans etc...(didn’t really look clean and we definitely decided to eat out then cook in). The furniture was well outdated, poor condition to use, chairs and couches full of dust mites. Sound travels throughout the facility to get a good nights sleep. The place it’s self is about to fall to bits. Price definitely not worth staying. Glad to have left and will never return
