Liked: Good value for money (breakfast included!!!). Girls only area just ingeniously decent!

Disliked: Odour coming out of the girls' toilet into my room was awkward. Reading light did not work! Staff should consider that not every guest is an 18-year-old backpacker seeking for the ultimate 24-hours-non-stop entertainment.
