Room was functional and clean and as expected having stayed in uni accomodation before. Missed having a room to congregate as a group in -we were on a reunion weekend -so it would have been nice to have a lounging space to chill out in when we weren't out and about. Extremely good value if all you want is a cheap clean bed for a night or two.
