    Older reviews say there is no wifi, which I was expecting but newer ones mention wifi in common area/cafe. Can anyone verify if there is or isn't wifi there now?

    How do you keep your property secured while staying there? For example if you have more than one camera and don't want to take them with you everywhere you go?
