Nice stay, nice spot
Black Swan was clean and tidy. Under-bed lockers, beds with curtains, and personal charging ports were all nice touches. Great location, friendly staff, and plenty of social events. cons: Bathroom stalls are tiny, showers only have one hook, and the crowd runs young (read: noisy). All said, I had a pleasant stay.
