Not bad. The rooms were a little cramped, and painted in an awful shade of green with graffiti on the walls. They could certainly do with modernisation and refurbishment. The lasagne was reasonable. Staff were pleasant, though unable to carry out their job to the best of their ability due to poor management. The selection of books on offer was somewhat bleak, and the en suite intimidating. I was unable to leave my room for the most part of my visit, and also had no internet connectivity which absolutely ruined the visit. Also the 2:30am checking out time was far less than convenient. I won't be visiting (out of choice) again, even though this accommodation was free.
