Out of all the HI I've stayed at this one was the worst. WiFi only on the first floor, charging for a towel, as well as 3 pounds for luggage storage, for either 24 hours or until you need to get into your luggage again. As well as policed wifi caused several of my social applications to not work on their wifi. This was also the only HI where I was charged for the continental breakfast as well. Would not stay at this location again.
