    Nothing!

    1. False advertisement of type of rooms. This says 'single bunk bed' and shows one bunk bed. I get there and there is two. 3. The rooms are way too small for more than two people. 4. The nasty plastic shower curtain touches you as you STRUGGLE to shower. 5. Water pressure extremely low, a mere sprinkle. 6. No tub, though it says there's one. 7. There is no height to the shower step in. Water gets all over floor. 8. She foes not give you towels upon check in. You have to inquire. No face towels. Bring your own. 9. The shower head is way too long outward from wall for such a tiny shower. God forbid if you're fat. 10. The cold air from outside blows into windows. 11. No heat ever comes on. Leave door open to let heat from hallway come in. Hallway is only heated area of hotel. She knew this, yet offered no heater. I could not lay down, too cold. 12. She doesn't answer front desk phone. Sits in her cellphone entire shift. You have to leave your room, walk up /down stairs. 13. Cleaning woman is rude and unprofessionl too. She bangs on door , she does not announce herself, YOU have to ask who's there, and despite you saying 'NO CLEANING/NO THANK YOU', she enters anyway. Looks at you laying down after disturbing your much needed sleep, despite you saying 'JUST BRING ME A ROLL OF TISSUE' while the door is still closed, she enters anyway, walks through tiny room, climbs over your belongings with her nasty shoes, goes into tiny washroom, tries to take towel from floor without having a replacement towel. Does not apologize for disturbing you for no reason, and despite you telling her that you told front desk to put the room down as NO CLEANING/DO NOT DISTURB. 14. There are no DO NOT DISTURB signs. 15. You have to get dressed, put on coat rt to go to the community room, it's entrance is in other side of building. She gives you no code nor key to enter it. Do not go in there though,anyway.

    The staff was helpful

    It was clearly not clean. I got white towel that had stains on it, no bedsheets at all and a small blanket that was not enough to keep me warm from the cold ( I ended up using the towel to protect me from the blanquet and used my coat in the night because I was cold). I was also offered a room that I couldn't open because the padlock was broken...
