    The location is great, and very easy to find. The staff is helpful. Breakfast is ok.

    No windows in the dorms, not mentioned on the website. Also, not enough bathrooms, those do not have windows and smell of mildew as the doors are always closed. Could also use more cleaning.

    Location and the staff were excellent

    Bathrooms were filthy. Near the bathrooms it was very stinky. Proper ventilation needs to be arranged in the bathrooms.
