Washing machines and dryers were all out of order. We had to go to a commercial laundrette nearby who did not have change. We could not get any change from YHA either which was a problem. Our room was a bit stuffy at night even with then window open and fan on. Otherwise the facility was clean, tidy and conveniently located. The staff were courteous and helpful. I know room in the building is a bit tight And there were lots of people, so given all the above I think the venue worked well.
