    Stayed here with 3 friends in one big room. Place is in a neglected state. Mattrasses are far too soft. Shower has no pressure. Filthy carpets. Location in city center is OK. Breakfast mainly processed foods.

    malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
    have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
