This is a good budget option for downtown, but don't think you're getting anything special.
We didn't take part in any of the activities, but they seemed popular and well organised.
The staff - Becky was wonderful and helpful and even when oddities walked in off the street to cause a bit of a ruckus she was always calm and polite. I don't know the name of the ginger guy on the desk but he clearly has an attitude problem. If you see him, try and talk to someone else, the chap really looks down his nose at people.
All in all, it was a fine stay, but you WILL need to use the earplugs provided.
