"8 man room is much cheaper and generally not as full as the 4 man rooms. They do have at least one private room."
"the room with AC always fills up quick, so if you don't want to be on the top bunk, settle for the other dorm room."
"Great location to bars, restaurants, and dance clubs."
"If you come to this place, try get one of the bigger dorms with fewer beds in it"
"I had the private room with a toilet on the ground floor. A bit loud, but easy in and out."
