  • Very good location and lots of people hang out in the common areas so you can easily meet new friends. Jolly Swagman had something for every day of the week for activities. Showers were not that great and the first washer we tried messed up the load. The wifi is free but is bad unless you are using it during times of early morning or week days when lots of people are at work. They have computers with Internet that work good as an alternative. Overall good stay
