    Good deal for the price.

    This is a party hotel mostly for backpackers, but we booked the private king room. The view of the city from our balcony was nice. The hallways and room smelled musty, but were clean. Furniture was dated, but comfortable. The bar/restaurant had great deals for good and drinks...and the quality of the food & drinks was good. For the price, this was a good deal.
