Lobby common area small and extremely noisy. Tried eating in area but way to loud. Outdoor seating will help.

4/10 Fair

Hair on sheets. Weird little pillows - more like lumpy cushions. No sink in the little shared kitchen, which is not hygienic. Whole thing felt a bit seedy. The staff were nice and if you’re up for a party and aren’t concerned with cleanliness, maybe this is for you. The private was very overpriced and was like a small, empty, old dorm. The disposable utensils and bowls are convenient but super wasteful. Baffled by the rating this place gets.

Great experience overall! Breakfast was provided, place was clean and friendly. Everything was close by the hotel. Only thing is that the bed would shake in random times as if there was a slight earthquake..
