Too many people coming and going in basement room...really all three rooms came through the door near me and men and women used the bathroom and woke me up all night. Snoring was very loud and with the door noise and lights all night it was the pits for sleeping. I was so tired I left after two nights. Location was cool but the place was run down and the outside looked inviting in pics but not in real time.
