Pros:The room was Ok if you are just looking for a place to leave your stuff and come back to sleep. And the location is excellent as it is in the middle of everything and very close to the Town Hall Station.
Cons:The Bathrooms are a major DISASTER. Very old and sometimes dirty and the showers are just like old beach public showers. Plus it doesn't have a lift so you have to carry all your luggage. Is just like a Hostel but with a private room and awful shared bathrooms.
