Avoid at all costs
Avoid this place at all costs, the way this place treats people is absolutely disgusting. I had to walk the streets all night in the freezing cold because someone else in my dorm smoked in the room. I told him.nunerous times not to do it yet 'i allowed it'. What do you expect me to do remove the cigarette from his mouth and get into a fist fight. I was just giving someone advice on somewhere to stay. The person even admitted to person on desk it wasn't me and I wasn't smoking. I only popped outside for a cigarette and someone asked me if there was anywhere cheap to stay so I recommended it as it seemed pretty cheap. I told the person numerous times not to smoke in the dorm yet apparently 'i allowed it'. I even told the guy on reception he was making me nervous. They threw me on the street and I had to walk the streets all night in a storm. I feel I'll today.
