Great unique place. A chance to stay in an actual prison, albeit, minus the criminals... :P

Was actually worried that there might be unrest spirits, but rest assured..

Unique Qualities: This is a converted prison for light criminals and is right-smacked in the city centre. Really unique as all the fixtures are still kept within, and boy, that includes all the locks, padlocks, latches on the inches-thick door as well as bars on the windows.

No fear tho, the amenities are great, with top-notched facilities..... erm... for budget-travellers standards, I mean.

And the best of all, you have to actually queue up with trays on hand, for meals.... :P how quaint could this be????
