The location is great, the room are clean. Not very soundproof but you get what you pay for. The curtains are very opaque- you can see out and everyone can see in. The check in process is somewhat flawed- no identification is checked and no information was required from any of the 5 other people staying in the room- no names, phone numbers etc Worst case scenario- you could have your items taken by someone you shared a room with and they would not have any details for you to report to the police. It may seem a tedious process to show your identification at check in but it would really go a long way in general safeness. I had other issues with the check out process but we will be finding other avenues to resolve this.
