Free wi-fi was best thing here.

Honestly, I did not enjoy my stay here. I checked into a spacious room but it was giving me the creeps that I asked to be relocated to another room. Which was all the way in the back of the house, still creeped out, I asked if they can just put me in a dorm. I didn't care if I overpaid on the room. I was put in a dorm room with three males- was told it was a co-ed. I didn't care if it was co-ed but the fact that one of the men there made it known that he was upset at me being in the room by making these constant huffing sounds and being absolutely LOUD about everything he was doing. It was uncomfortable but I did not want to inconvenience the front desk anymore. In the morning, I overhead a conversation between a female guest and front desk reception stating that she paid to be in an all female dorm but why was a man put in there. I wonder if this was what happened with me as well. ***If you are trying to get some rest without headphones, good luck. You can hear everything from the dorm rooms, especially people on mobile conversations sitting on the stair well.
The single rooms are worn down. This place is in dire need of a refresh. My first room's closet looked as if something crawled its way out of the ceiling. It was extremely cold and no proper place to plug in the heater.
The local area is great. Lots of restaurants and galleries to enjoy.
