Positive Reviews

A Budget-Friendly Pick

Many guests chose to stay here when they were trying to keep accommodation costs as low as possible. Usually, when their primary concern was to save money, guests found this place more than suitable.

There's a Handy Shared Kitchen

Guests liked how this property offers a communal kitchen. They reported it was well stocked with equipment needed for cooking, and kept very clean by housekeepers. You may be able to make your stays even more cost effective by using the kitchen to make meals, rather than eating out.

The Location is Good

Guests appreciated how they were able to easily walk to Darby Street, with its selection of shops and restaurants, while staying here. As a result, they felt free to explore without hassles, even if they were not very familiar with the area.

Negative Reviews

Noise From The Bar

If you are a light sleeper, it could be difficult to get good slumber here. The property has an attached pub that's usually busy due to its pizza, drink and entertainment offerings. Guests said that the associated noise sometimes persisted past midnight.

Thin Blankets

If you will be staying here during the winter, keep in mind that guests warned the supplied blankets are quiet thin, which made them largely ineffective. Even when guests asked for additional blankets to be provided, they were still sometimes cold.

Struggles Related to the Showers

Guests sometimes experienced difficulties while in the showers here. They found the water pressure to be very low, which was often frustrating. On a related note, guests frequently found that the hot water supply was low.
