Good location
Great location - close access to many activities, transportation, restaurants... The front desk was very helpful at all times and brought the rating up...breakfast was average. That said, maid service was what brought my rating down. General cleaning - towels were changed daily. Glasses were NOT washed...I used one for soda on the first night and the glass was not washed for several days. Of the 5 nights, we were given 2 water bottles on the first day and on the fourth day.

Hostel - NOT a Hotel
Obvious hostel 'converted' into 'hotel' that doesn't be meet three star standard: vinyl floor with grooves was always dirty (never swept or mopped over 4 night stay) with water stains, mold, and debris; holes in sheets and fraying towels; shower never cleaned during stay; toiletries not replenished regularly; small leak in u-bend of the toilet; scuffs and smudges in walls. The room was revamped to look better but was obviously a hostel prior to opening as a hotel. On top of that, the room I booked was for two twins; I was given a double and told that the reservation option wasn't honored because of how I booked the hotel online... there wasn't very little comfort or amentity about this place for the price paid. Even the access to wifi was restricted to limited access per device. Fortunately I had reason to be out of the room as much as possible. I wouldnt recommend this place to anyone, especially with so many better hotels located literally a few doors down with the sameness convenience of its location to the central stop near the HB.
