Turn the heating down!!
Very friendly staff, clean and pretty comfortable. But on second night, heating was turned on/up and it was unbearable - even with windows open. A real sauna, particularly on top bunks. I asked for it to be turned down and it was set at 22 degrees but still too warm. Asked again, with backing from others in dorm, but nothing happened. I think you would have a good reception to signs saying that because of climate change and the war you are being conservative on heating. Guests should tell you if not comfortable. Guests will appreciate this! Only other issue was that the access to the roof was locked at night. Is this not a fire risk?

6/10 Good

Shower and toilet in tight spaces. Shower ceiling was quite dirty. Did appreciate the overhead space on bottom bunk bed. Would appreciate toilet paper refill. Would appreciate if we can get more than one towel, as it stated towels were included in my booking. Had to ask Male receptionist to get that extra towel for my hair :) In his words, “it’s just a towel”. Did appreciate female receptionist making it an all female room minus my last night, when it was not fault of female receptionist, as she was off that day. Overall good experience, just wish bigger shower and cleaner
