Kitchen was ALWAYS a mess but I know this is also responsibility of the clients staying there (have some respect guys!). WiFi that was meant to be accessible in public areas was never accessible - neither of us could... More

Rooms were quite small but reasonable for the price payed. Bathroom was small and unusually shaped and hallways were very noisy until around 4:30am but bed was comfy and the room was clean. Overall a nice stay
