Good points - free breakfast Bad points - most staff members were rude. Either patronising or unhelpful... Or both! (Especially the bald American guy that seems to do the night shift) - the door between the 'ensuite' and the shared bedroom was not soundproof OR smellproof - the area was full of crackheads and crazy people shouting at themselves - The room was not secure enough - I had to buy a phonecard from the front desk to call a landline 45 minutes away despite the'free local calls'

The staff were friendly. The area was pretty cool, there a lot of homeless people chilling outside but they were pretty friendly and nice. The only issue I really had was that it was very noisy out in the street until about 3am.
