Little or no effort on behalf of staff to be helpful, mostly a take it or leave it attitude. No communal vibe at all, mostly just a few folks vegging out in front of a TV.
The showers are wretched electric ones that don't work half the time, and the showers have no privacy. Communal showers are not cool, so there was a bit of a wait in the mornings cuz folks wanted to let those showering have privacy and so effectively only one person showers at a time. The bathroom has no ventilation, so steam builds up fast and makes everything damp, including the rarely cleaned toilets.
The building facade was being worked on, so the bar area was really dark. They have the WORST brazilian beer, Sintra, and no other option. A sip of the stuff makes for a horrible hangover.
Everything about Ace is about squeezing out the last dime.
The only bright spot is the mattress. They are thick and pretty comfortable.
