Pros: location, mostly polite staff.
Cons: terrible beds, very uncomfortable to sleep! We expect noise but a despite the rules being advertised we were woken up very early by drunk people & an argument between them and other guests! Very thin walls, no hot water in either the male or female bathrooms ( we were awake at 7am so not exactly peak time!). The male toilets had not been cleaned at all..... There is not enough plug sockets in the rooms and you cannot get wifi in the bedrooms - especially the kinlay room.
Breakfast is basic - nothing to complain about. Reception staff were all friendly until we decided to check out after 1 night instead of staying the 3 night we paid for where we had a rather rude encounter with a staff member. Would not go back.
