"I got a motel room, which was upstairs so a bit quieter and quite large."
"Go for a dorm, they seemed cooler at night than private!"
"Provate with shared bathroom could have been provided with a mirror and some hooks on the walls to hang things."

"The door was difficult to lock so wasn’t the most secure when going out. "
