8/10 Very good

The staff was amazing, the floor and the shared bathroom was clean. But they said no noise is permitted with the notes on the wall, but unfortunately the people around my room were so loud, talked outside of my front door. Even I closed all the windows I could hear. But the other than that it was nice accommodation.
