    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.
