Liked: The location is convenient.

Disliked: It was very loud at night. The quiet hours are not enforced at all and no staff is there at night to say anything. The wifi did not work at all. The kitchen was very dirty. The room was super tiny, not enough space for three people to stand at the same time (there were three beds). The staff was not particularly helpful.
