Stay Away

I checked in, saw the room, and checked out, even though I paid for 4 night and knew I wouldn't get the money back. Dirty, creepy, only 1 sloooow working elevator, no easy access to stairs. It's cheap as heck, so if that's all you can afford, that's up to you. There are plenty other backpackers in the area though. I would not recommend it to anyone.
