Liked: The size of the rooms, the breakfast and the kitchen was fine too. It was not that noisy outside and quite in the night.

Disliked: The bathrooms were dirty. The shower was cold in the evening, but I don´t know, maybe I just did´t get how to use it right. We had little cockroachs in our room, who were hiding under our bags and could lay eggs in our stuff.

Liked: The location is good.

Disliked: The property is really shabby. A throwback to the SROs (Single room residence hotels) of the 1970s. Obviously they just took one over with the minimum of renovations. They seemed to take no thought about putting me in a room with a woman (I am a man). This seemed inconsiderate to female modesty and insecurity: to throw a woman into a shared room (bunk bed) with an unknown man.
