Perfect location
Perfect location for a night out. Lovely size apartment. Very clean. Only negatives being a few missing lightbulbs and one sofa leather was tired and worn. Regardless of that would definitely book again.

I thought the used condom under the bed was uniquely disgusting. As was the £25 cleaning fee charged on top of the price. The place is grubby and one has to walk through a bad neighborhood if you come from Central Station. Navis will take you down Bute street which has a number of shelters and homeless on the streets. Walking in I saw 2 drug deals go down in broad daylight and then a stabbing! yes a stabbing at the Christina steet projects shut down the entire area with police. Apparently that is a known drug dealing area. Lastly, and best of all, the room is located directly across from an elderly shelter. Fine but the staff come out every two hours for a smoke break all night and talk loudly. You cant open a window. And I was there during a heat wave. It all ended with deliveries at 6.30am on metal carts over cobblestones. It was the worst place I have EVER stayed in. I woudl avoid this grubby hole at all costs. Oh - and the beds are of dismal quality. Thin mattresses. It was so bad it was actually funny. It is clearly only good for a flop house for people in town for rugby who are too pissed to care.
