Good stay at YMCA
Excellent value for money but the location is so so. Be ready to walk a lot or take taxis - or try to figure out whether you can take a bus.

Value for money hotel at good location
We're travelling with young children & for medical reason. It is just opposite Island Hospital and it is very convenient for us as we can always come back to the hotel for a nap. We stayed plenty of times before and we were always satisfied with the cleanliness. However, on the last stay, our rooms (we booked 3 rooms) were not cleaned for 2 days during our 3-night stay.
