+ I used to live in fulford and wanted to go to the university as well as the city centre and visit people I'm fulford and out in the villages. Perfect hug for me. If you're only interested in getting into the city center, it is a very straight forward half hour walk that I actually liked very much.
+ Beds were extremely comfy.
+ Receptionist staff were extremely nice.
- Wifi was horrendous. We were told by some other guests the only way they could get wifi was by sitting in the lounge. Free wifi is advertised, but I couldn't get on it once with my iPod, and just barely got on it after about 1/2 hour of struggling on my laptop.
- There was a window, but we had to keep the curtains closed constantly, as people could see right in and were constantly outside. Was a little uncomfortable.
- I don't consider myself I light sleeper. But bloody hell first thing in the morning every morning was the guests' above me waking up at 7:00 am exactly. I've been in places where you could hear footsteps above you, but they tend to be muffled somewhat. This was loud creaking. Towards the end we were joking someone was about to fall through the roof. It was awful.
Overall, I was great full for location and the comfy beds, and the staff were all super friendly, but for the amount it cost, I would have expected someone to have sorted the wifi signal issue this place seems to have, and that noise shouldn't be there!!! I could have maybe handled it, if this place wasn't so pricey. I just feel a little ripped off. But if you can sleep like a beast and don't mind sitting in the lounge for Internet (lounge was empty the whole time I was in there) then go for it. less
