4/10 Fair

Rooms require constant cleaning. There should be a obligation for tenants to shower at least one per week. As well people being shameless to having loud sexual relations even when all the roomates were in rest time at 2 am. For some reason not having access to the kitchen in night hours having the excuse to not letting you go inside a club that shares common areas with the hotel. So you can't drink a glass of water after 10 pm because they're thinking you're trying to smuggle into the club. No even have any decent game area or pool .
