The staff were very friendly. I basically used this place just to sleep and not much else. But I didn't have a particularly good sleep, it was freezing the whole night. Like I was shivering.. They only had a thin sheet to keep me warm (or not warm) and I read before I came that I wasn't able to bring my own sleeping bag, which I understand to eliminate the possibility of bed bug contamination. But at least have the heat or working, or if it was explain upon arrival, since the heater was ancient.
