Great location to stay and v good value, but cleanliness is bad -room floor was sticky, had dirty towel full of mascara and pillow had dirty cover, used my travel pillow to sleep on. Whole place had a musky smell in halls and shared bathroom was really dirty too. If cleanliness was improved, it would be great place that I would recommend.
