Comfortable beds, excellent customer service, great atmosphere in the lounge... Bathrooms smelled musty and had no ventilation, but that's my only complaint

Las instalaciones en general y la atención son muy buenas pero hay un baño y una regadera para compartir con varios cuartos. Se localiza muy cerca del Centro y eso ayuda a no utilizar transporte.
