The hotel was recommended by a friend who had stayed there for many times and knew the owners. I don't use hotels of this price level too often, and based on the reviews here I was prepared for the worst. Everything turned out all right. The room was extremely cheap at $25 (got a special discount I think). Drinks in the mini bar were very, very reasonably priced.
My room was facing the street, it was quite spacious and and there were two small windows. This room was a tiny bit noisy but I would still choose it again instead of a room with no window.
There was a secret mini garden hidden on top of the hotel, not sure if it's meant for guests but we took a look anyway.
The only minor inconvenience during this short stay was that the hotel's elevator stopped while we were inside and I was scared that it got stuck, however it then continued immediately, so no harm done.
