6/10 Good

Really cramped all around; it's a very narrow row house, so constantly bumping into people, and the stairs are windy, steep, and narrow. I liked its location and the everyone was really nice. Not very clean.

2/10 Poor

This place gives the illusion of a dorm style room but doesn’t directly say that there will be ten other people in that room. I felt terrible because we had a late check in (11pm) coming from out of town and the desk person knocked on the door and turned the lights on, disturbing all the other guests unlucky enough to be staying there. I decided to pass at that point but wasn’t about to get my money back. Don’t make the mistake of staying here.
