I felt very uncomfortable and unsafe at this facility, there was a domestic disturbance a few rooms from me with a woman screaming she was being murdered and the police being called on 2 different occasions through out the night, i was in a female only area and there were constantly men of different ages walking around, being able to see right into the bathroom facilities. The wifi didnt work & it was very noisy and so overpriced for what it offered, i would not recommend this to anyone!


Was good to have my own room at a reasonable price. Would have rather not had the cockroaches though.

For the money and for one night it Average.


the bed was not comfortable, hardly i could get the internet wireless connection the building looked really old. it would have been a fair deal if i was paying 25$ a day for the room.
