    Lots of good restaurants, bars and cafes around! Rooms are clean and the rooftop space is really great! Unfortunately it can be pretty noisy at night with the surrounding nightlife (although it was the weekend). The dorms are also a bit of a tight squeeze.

    I think it should be toddler friendly cause you won't have that much people in there as compared to the other rooms in the property. It should be alright. :)
