Great shuttle driversThe shuttle drivers were fun and very helpful. The girls behind the desk were a bit slow.... Television never worked right. This is a good place to take our family, has free popcorn all day long, and a pool and fun things to do, The shuttle will take you to the beach.

Great hostelThe hostel was so nice. About a 10 min walk from any food. Our confirmation said that breakfast was included but if they were talking about the half loaf of bread and 2 cereal choices I think that's a bit of a joke. Ended up finding a subway instead

Your apartment in a very expensive downtown.Go with your own pillowcases, bedsheet, blanket, shampoo plus conditioner, soap etc. If your purpose is just sleep and bath and low on budget go for it. Don't expect daily cleaning, refrigerator etc.
