    I orginially booked this place for a couple of nights and then decided o stay for another. Here are the reasons why:

    1) Great location, easy to get to from the city centre (15 minutes on the train which is really cheap especially if you buy a weekly ticket);
    2) Great mix of people both staff and residents, both long term and short term;
    3) Great facilities (especially the kitchen and the showers);
    4) Quiet (as in no noise from the street. This is difficult to find right inthe city centre;
    5) Price: Well I think that speaks for itself;

    I would go back there in a flash having been to other bakcpacckers in the city centre. Great staff, great facilites. Well run.

For once, we allowed way too much transfer time but the Canadian rugby team is on the tv in the lounge and the boy is absorbed in volume three of The Game of Thrones. We are lucky boys.
