    I stayed with my 9 yr old son so for us an over night stay was good but as there was shared toilets showers etc i dont think we would have stayed any longer, although staff did give us a room in a nice quiet spot, but for younger people a good place to stay, location was great near the underground, and easy to walk to a lot of attractions.

    Breakfast was nice and of course location...design of the first floor was interesting.

    Rooms really tiny.

    Very good

    The Generator was easy to find, the rooms were as you'd expect for the price, everything was exactly how I expected it to be, and the shower and toilet facilities were clean and easy to use

    The rooms could have done with some air conditioning, as of a night time they were uncomfortably hot. There could be a little bit more variety on the Breakfast side of things.

    Efficient, complete basic services.

    One rude staff member, but nine other polite ones. Shower out of order on our floor. Other guests not always clean and polite.
