An excellent budget stay
I had a very pleasant stay: goodenough college is a little oasis tucked away in its own square. The rooms are basic but clean and tidy. The concierge and all the staff were extremely polite, courteous and helpful at all times. I would definitely stay again.

4/10 Fair

Very basic - be warned!
Extremely basic guest accommodation. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room, just a lumpy single bed and only one pillow. No air conditioning. No crockery, cutlery or pans provided in the shared kitchen, and the shared kettle was broken. Reception couldn't provide even a mug. Good points: breakfast was good quality and cheap, and the wifi was good.

6/10 Good

Not for light sleepers
LIGHT SLEEPERS: I thought this would offer a quiet night’s sleep as most rooms look into an internal courtyard. Sadly not: the courtyard houses the bins, and people chuck their waste in there which booms around the courtyard. The sound insulation is also bad: the person above me was stomping around and dragging furniture on my ceiling late into the night and then early again in the morning. Three nights of hardly any sleep, unfortunately. The staff were very helpful and the location is fantastic but you are unlikely to sleep well here.

Good Enough to Stay
Great for a short stay, everything you need in the room, except for no aircon or fan.
