5.1 Fair
Cons:It just didn’t feel clean at all. The photos online are NOT what this place looks like at all.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Affordable, large open area with lounge and kitchen, private parking lot, safe and secured building, located right in the heart of the city, two computers available for use
Cons:Rooms were small and tight. The place had a funky odor, not sure if it's because the floors were carpeted. The staff wasn't very knowledgeable as to where to park in the lot so I was worried about getting a citation or towed.
