Liked: Great perks for a backpacker! Beds were clean, plenty of room for each backpacker to store their stuff.

Disliked: I wonder if it has a bit of an identity crisis lol. Is it a hostel? Is it a hotel? When we tried to sleep, we couldn't find a way to slide the blinds over so they could block out the outside lights.
