Price was good but trade off is without a car you need to take a bus into the city centre. Staff person on duty for check-in seemed put out and angry at all of us waiting. Line up to check in was slow. Cafeteria staff were very nice. Breakfast was included.

Good value and super friendly and helpful staff. Advert on this site was misleading as it stated that some services at the accommodation were available when this was not the case.

Enjoyed my stay
No one was around , it was so quiet and that was great. For the price the room was excellent. Its basic and it met my expectations. Its hard to find at first if you go by public transport from the airport. The location is decent and it's got a store on site, there is a pharmacy nearby too. Only one small thing, the double bed was 2 singles and there was a noticeable lump down the middle where the 2 beds met.

Clean, safe, economical stay - Recommended
Perfect for a transit stopover but I would stay here again for other reasons. Staff was polite and prepared. They sent me with a brown bag breakfast since I was going to miss service in the cafeteria the next morning - very nice touch! Rooms are college dorms so are very basic but comfortable and very clean. If you want luxury and service pay much more and stay elsewhere. It's on a college campus and so the area is transportation rich - lots of public options into town or to the airport. There is a small grocery on campus just a few minutes' walk and other shops in the area. Security of the building and of the campus area was good. The wi-fi worked great. It's a little tricky to find but with a phone map and some preparation it's doable. Reception is at one location (the sport complex), your room will be in another building a short walk away. Bottom line: I'd stay here again and would recommend to friends. This place is nothing fussy or fancy but is really great if you want a clean, safe place to stay.
