Horrific is the only way to describe this place. On the webpage it looks fine, but when you get there you see how misleading that was. The room was small and dirty, with dried fluids down the side of the bed. The room stunk. And that's not the worst, there's the bathrooms! A set of shared bathrooms down the hall. The morning after our fist night every single toilet and shower were blocked! This was horrendous, we couldn't use the toilets or showers and had to walk down to a fast food restaurant to use their bathrooms! We immediately checked out (no refund) and went to another hotel nearby that was at live-able standards. 500 west was the worst accommodation experience I have ever had, and it was nowhere near the cheapest. Also we barely slept due to the high levels of noise, drunk teenagers running around the hallways at all hours playing musing and fighting and yelling. Do not stay there!
