Small kitchen and no where to hang out as the lounge was under construction. But clean and great location

Fantastic downtown location near museums and waterfront. Great staff. Single user bathrooms. Bedrooms on three tall floors but no elevator. Bedrooms are small with only small under-bed lockers. The kitchen is tiny; one sink and stove for 120 people. The reception and common areas are tiny. There are plans to expand into an adjoining restaurant and there should be a fantastic kitchen and common area later this year. One block from the airport bus. I would stay here again just for the location.
