          Double room was spare but the walls were not very sound-proof. It was loud until late in the night and difficult to get to sleep. The bathrooms were not clean and my wife didn't feel safe with all the drunk people trekking through the building.

          Very unclean, room was in the basement which just had a cement floor with an old carpet. Sheets didn't fit on bed. Staff extremely intoxicated when we arrived. We were very uncomfortable and struggled to sleep.

          If you want to keep costs down and meet new (friendly) people, this is the place for you. It feels like you are in a house and all the essentials are there. Unfortunately it is not very clean and the house could use some TLC....More
