Liked: Convenient location near central train station. Good value

Disliked: It was actually like a maze. Hard to find the bathrooms at night I was confused haha. Disliked that there were no lockers in the room and my room was really hot and noisy at night (noise from the street, window had to be open to keep it cool). Was the last thing left day of on a Saturday, wouldn't really recommend.

Liked: Such an amazing atmosphere with activities happening every night! Provided free drink and entrance to Side Bar (5 minute walk from Maze) and they had free Pancakes one morning. Very friendly people staying there. Definitely a good place if you want a more lively scene. Hot and clean showers!

Disliked: There was no AC in the rooms which made it quite stuffy but the overhead fan made it comfortable. There was also no free internet but you could pay $4 for 24 hours of free wifi. Some of the staff weren't super friendly and welcoming but others were absolutely amazing.
