    The communal kitchen and lounge is well equipped and the bed was much more comfortable than expected.

    Shared rest rooms are not ideal for an old man like me but we knew this when we booked

    Good bedding. Spacious room. Fabulous location

    I wish I could wash my hands or brush teeth without getting shoes and a robe, locking up and going down the hall.

    The common area was clean and comfortable

    It's forbidden to use the common kitchen after eleven and I like to have dinner after midnight
