Puhtaat pyyhkeet haisivat todella pahalle. Lounge oli ahdas ja aamupala ei ollut mitenkään hyvä, Loungessa joka päivä samaa mössöä eikä yhtää tuoretta vihannesta ja perusaamupalahuoneessa vain hieman runsaampi valikoima. Portaisiin ei ollut minkäänlaisia opasteita. Henkilökunta oli ystävällistä ja huoneet perussiistit, vaikka pyyhkeet haisivatkin.
