    The facilities were fine for a few nights in London, the staff really let this place down though. They were not welcoming and didn’t seem interested to actually help anybody when they came to the desk to ask for assistance.

    Charger ports in upper bunks, toilets in the actual room isn’t the best when someone stinks and it’s all in the room. The post code for the property doesn’t bring you to the correct location. Very good location for the price
