Friendly place and very nice location. Convenient price. It feels secure, which is important if you're traveling solo. That said, I had trouble sleeping because my mattress was too soft and gave me a backache, and the room was too hot (traveled during the summer); not to mention that one of my roommates was snoring ;). It is ok for one or two nights.
