6/10 Good

Dirty, but helpful customer service
I stayed a few nights here. When I first checked in, I was given a very dirty all female room. The trashcans were completely filled, the bathroom floors were dirty, the hand towel hanger was broken, and it smelled bad. I went downstairs to complain and asked how often were the rooms cleaned. I kept asking when it would be clean because it would be a health hazard for the women staying there. The receptionist was kind enough to move me to a mixed room that was significantly cleaner.

Nice place. Modern finishes. Kind staff. Fantastic price. Booked on Expedia and for a private room for less than I found in Hostelworld. The bed was comfortable and the en suite was luxurious/huge!

Slowest check in eveerrr. Took 30 minutes cause their system was down. Room was a decent size, had shelves, hangers, blow dryer etc. However, the floors were dirty. There was a musky smell in the washroom. Good location . Hair dryer provided. And really nice and hot water in the shower ! However, super noisy from main courtyard.
