    Staff was nice. Stay here if you don't mind a complete lack of soap, beds seemingly made of coat hangers, and loud International bros yelling drunkenly in the courtyard and smashing bottles into the wee hours of the mornin'; or waking to the sounds of said bros snorting cocaine, and slapping sounds of a 6am gang-bang starring a hapless young lady, while the bros reciting their cheesy macho lines as if they were acting out their own episode of Bros Gone Wild. 21 y/o bros only.
