Stayed with a large group in late September for four nights. First night was hot and muggy, so we left the window open overnight. Big mistake. The street noise with the cobble stone stretch just outside the window made it hard to sleep. Monday nights must be when the street cleaner decided to do his job, so the noise was quite irritating. We requested to have a room fan installed. Delightfully, one was installed over each bed bunk space. This allowed the window to remain closed and the noise out for the remaining three nights. Ahh, sleeping then was sweet! The internet area was nice to have, with 2 PC's and 3 Apple's available. Wireless also available to those with a notebook or similar device.
The kitchen area for breakfast was quite nice, with eggs and bread available along with fruit and coffee. The large school group attending that week made it necessary to wake up early to beat the crowd.
Prices were reasonable, the staff helpful and friendly. (Thanks for the fans)
Be prepared to be asked for spare change from the locals on the street out front.
Finally, the washroom/ showers were recenly renovated, and everything worked quite nicely.
I would recommend this facility to those on a shoestring budget, and even if you're not.
