Liked: There's space ib front of the shower curtain where you can put your clothes. They have enough power outlets and lockers right next to the beds.

Disliked: It's not possible to walk to the sights downtown because it's too far, you always have to pay for the subway.

Liked: the location it self (close to the train lines), and the great atmosphere in between the travelers and the helpfulness of the staff.

Disliked: the cleaning, I was there almost 10 days and only once they change the sheets and towel (only because I ask for that), the internet service was ok the first two days but later was really slow.
