Liked: It was downtown

Disliked: the wifi was terrible and rarely worked. Half the time you ran out of hot water. There was no soap, you had to buy a towel, the rooms were a shoebox, no place to hang your clothes. Used condom on the stairs, too many stairs to get to your room and the office, no lift.
