    I had a double bed private with shared bathroom. The room was great - felt clean, comfortable. The bathroom was not good. It didn't seem to be cleaned often with cleaning products, it was only just maybe sprayed down with the shower head from time to time lol. Result: unpleasant. Staff forgot to tell us to get a special keycard for returning after 3am..got locked out for 30 min as a result. Location is pretty bad IMO but bus stop and train are really close by. There is also a mall nearby.
