Liked: Very close to tram stop and the location was great for Surfer's. Friendly staff. Pool table.

Disliked: The rooms were TINY. And the bathroom (also very small) was DISGUSTING. It smelled like sewer water and water was always everywhere due to the tiny sink and from the shower. I did not shower during my stay because I didn't want my bare feet anywhere near that floor.The internet didn't work very well, had lots of trouble getting reception.
