Breakfast was also included in the price. We were given vouchers for up to £2 in the basement cafeteria. The continental breakfast was the best value for money at £2 exactly: choice of pastry/danish (the almond crossiants were yummy), toast with butter or jam, orange or apple juice, and coffee or tea.
ISH also houses 2 bars, a fitness centre (a day's membership only costs £3), and several conference rooms, so they're very versatile and cater to a variety of different groups: students, travellers, businesses on a budget, etc.
ISH also sponsors a number of fun activities for lodgers and residents, including cinema nights, day trips, and clubs: photography and martial arts among them.
Overall, it was a nice, relaxed atmosphere with a friendly and professional staff.
The price for a night's stay was £15.55 per person in a quad, but there are a number of other accomodation options to choose from. Luggage hold is offered for £1 per day.
