The stay was ok. Hard to book a room.

The staff have been helpful and assisted me with my requests. Beds are comfortable and there is rarely any noise.
WiFi is good and secure, but some people sit in the hallway outside their rooms due to low connectivity in the dorms.
The showers are hot with good water pressure. Although I would like management to put in an elevated wooden platform in the entrance of each shower.
So we can place our garments and they won’t get wet.
