Liked: terribly rude staff. They cut off water in the middle of a shower and it took a while for it to turn back on. The locker under my bed was broken and they told me to "deal with it." I was in a full room with all the lockers being used. I would never stay there again nor would I reccomend it to anyone else.

Disliked: The staff was terrible!

Liked: Since it is so large, it had vacancy when others were full.

Disliked: It's definitely geared toward a young, party crowd. I did not need to see the man in a thong that is apparently their latest marketing photo and plastered on every door. The halls were dirty. The kitchen was difficult to find and did not make me want to cook there.

Liked: Good location right in centre of town.

Disliked: It is impossible to adjust the temperature in the shower and it is far too hot. Be warned and prepared to stand to the side and splash water onto yourself. There aren't nearly enough power outlets in the rooms and the ones they have are halfway up the wall with nowhere to put your device. They take great pleasure in kicking out the quiet people sitting quietly reading in the hallways at 11pm but do nothing about the people running around screaming all night. Because they are attached to their own bar you can't bring in your own alcohol.
