There are a few plugs out and about to charge your electronics. Bed linens are clean but old, mines had a few holes and stains. There are lockers,... More

Everyone was given a tour of the place upon check-in, so we know where the lounge, kitchen, patio, and bathrooms etc... More

Had a great stay. The staff were lovely and helpful, the place was clean and the atmosphere was very nice. It only takes a couple of hours for you to feel completely at home. I would definitely recommend and I will be back.

Came here just for one night to hang out around the city and wasn't dissapointed. Great well informed stuff who made me feel this stay even more like at home. Great... More
