2/10 Poor

Only good thing was it Was not too far from the city. But it has no basic cleanliness, no basic facilities even no towels. I would never recommend it to anyone ever again

4/10 Fair

The shared dorm room looked as though the residents were long established, messy and hard to identify which was the clean and available bedspace. The sheets on the spare bed were covered in dust and hair. I decided to forfeit the $25 and not stay.
