The location is excellent! And the price is pretty good - my friend and I spent around 300 dollars each for 5 nights. We stayed on the 9th floor.The rooms are extremely small (we shared a bunk bed) but the beds were comfy and the sheets and everything was clean - because they change them everyday as well as the towels. However, one day I got a dirty towel with a brown-ish stain on it. Disgusting - but luckily I brought my own towel just in case. But it's just a place to rest and sit until you want to go out into the city again! The bathrooms are okay. Shared bathrooms - pretty clean. Obviously wear shower shoes and bring something to hold your soap. Some of the cleaners need to be more clear when coming into the bathrooms. Once I was coming out of the shower (I was dressed) and one of the male cleaners just told me to get out - he pretty much yelled at me. But he didn't even ask if anyone was in the bathroom when he came in, he just came in and did his thing without checking. Besides that, a lot of the other stuff is very nice. They say hello to everyone with a smile on their face and the staff at the front desks are very helpful! They are always willing to help.
Theres a little cafe/shop there where you can buy food and drinks, and there is free wifi and a large tv down in the lounge. Nice atmosphere down there.
