Liked: The bar was cool and one of the employees was nice. Those are the only decent things about this place.

Disliked: This place is disgusting. Extremely unclean, very old and un-renovated, the bathrooms are AWFUL. Half of the showers don't even work. I had to hold the shower head above me because it was just dangling from the wall. The showers are either freezing cold or scalding hot. No in-between. I was also afraid I might get trench foot from the nastiness of these showers. The rooms are also very small and cramped and the floors are very dirty and old. Also they are wooden floors so don't be surprised if you get bed bugs after staying at this place. Seriously, if you like any sort of cleanliness don't stay here. The pictures on the website are very inaccurate.
