  • 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

  • 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.
