4.5 Mediocre
Pros:The water pressure of the shower was amazing. The location was great. You could get everywhere really easily.
Cons:IT WAS EXTREMELY DIRTY!!! There were 4 showers what I think is not quite enough. The first was out of use. In the second it smelled like urine and the was a tampon in it. In the third was a ball of hair laying on the ground and the fourth was the same just not a ball of hair but hair EVERYWHERE. When I finished showering I just didn't feel clean... Same goes with the toilets they were just dirty. The pillows where so hard you gould have just use a brick to lay on. The breakfast is included so it's not that bad but it was not really what I expected. They had toast with marmalade/butter and this one type of cereal with milk.
