    It was incredibly expensive, dirty, old, uncomfortable. Location is good but the experience was awful. Prices in the pub are high, it is nothing like a hostel atmosphere. Rooms are small, very dirty, quite old. Just avoid it.

    Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
    flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
    with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
