Near Perfect
Travelling solo, it was great to have privacy with the curtain on the bunk bed. Also nice to have my own power point and light, this set up has been well thought out. Pillow and mattress were not as soft as I am used to but in all, a good stay. Friendly staff and cleanliness was excellent.
