4/10 Fair

It was just ok. It was a bed for the night, but I wouldn't recommend it for anything more than that. The beds were made up, but far from comfortable. Very thin walls, noisy all night The cleaners have NO idea about customer service. Wandering around yelling to each other, smoking outside rooms and as I found out when I left, not doing a great job under the beds. The place hasn't been renovated since at least the 70s and requires more than a lick of paint. No exhaust in the bathroom. Noisy aircon with no remote. Like I said, it was a roof and a bed, for a last minute stay I highly recommend looking elsewhere
