    The staff, a rotating group of young women are tremendously keen and friendly (except one sour puss), but the hotel being given 3 stars is on the very generous side of generous. Take the metal cabinet housing around the base of the shared bath which completely unfolds and collapses if touched. Take the sparse room, basically four walls and a bed, the window being the only thing that differentiates it from a cell. Maybe some cells have windows? Take the threadbare pillowcase, so threadbare it's a hole where your head goes. Take the rationing of very cheap toilet paper, even though at times I spied mountains of rolls in a hall which then vanished. It sort of reminds me of a hotel in Europe in the 1980s except for one thing that didn't exist then... the Wi-fi is excellent! I think if you're (a) young or (b) a cheapskate or (c) both, or (d) have non demanding standard, this hotel will suit. Bare minimum at best, if you want just a modicum of creature comforts, seek elsewhere and pay for it. One step below this would be them pitching a tent in the courtyard for you. But credit to the young women (who are probably paid slave labour rates), they seemed perky about the whole shebang. They were nice. And as stated the location is the big plus.

    This hotel's plus is definitely the location. I guess they know it too, hence the name.

    I'm not sure why I went with the whole shared bathroom thingo... really a major inconvenience. Why? Well you spend your morning waiting for someone to finish (20mins) only to be beaten to it when they do (another 20 mins). Repeat ad nauseum each day.
