the tv room was good but it was

the tv room was good but it was also v dirty. my clothes stunk after sitting in there. the staff sucked, they were not helpful and set me wrong on a number of occasions. lots of dumb rules. the location is in a residential area so you can't make any noise at all. bathroom / toilets not v clean. i have stayed in much better backpackers and i would never stay here again.
