  • Nice place, the thing that bothered me the most was missing lock for locker which had to be purchased separately and a hour of free wifi for the entire stay (elsewhere I got an hour of wifi each day).

  • Overall I was happy with the place. Not so happy was the no free wifi. I knew about this before but with how easy it is to provide it I thought it was pretty ridiculous that they were too cheap to do so. They also charged for towels so I made sure I came prepared.
