Stayed here for 3 nights (USD90 on quikbooks for the double with bathroom).
Good points? Location was OK and plenty of places to eat (Pax on the corner was a regular place for breakfast). Shower, free wifi internet = good. Concierge very helpful (didn't get her name) - had to print something up and she let me email and use their printers.
Not so good points? The lifts took forever and as was on the 2nd floor quicker to use the stairs. Seemed to attract noisy clientele - at one point felt like I was back at college, could hear people talking and running around at 3am etc. You can hear what is going on in the next room and if the bathrooms are next to you, the pipes are noisy too. Heating was centralised (no control in room) so it was hot as hell. Had to open the bathroom window for air. View outside window of concrete floor - nice. They have speakers in the hallways with music and for some reason this came on at 5:30am and reception advised they couldn't turn it off! Annoying. Might be better off getting the bunks as they take up less floor space than the double and seem to have more room.
You definitely don't want to be spending much time in your room and I don't think would go again at this price. For extra USD20 I got a king room in a nice hotel in LES.
