had a nice stay at vertigo. the internet/wifi is accessible in the bedroom, which is nice. the rooms are a bit stuffy, and the bunk i stayed in was SO SQUEAKY it squeaked when you would breathe. the steps are pretty steep up into our bed area of the loft, and it's pretty hot up there but it was nice. bedding was pretty soft, but don't think its cleaned that often. the location is exceptional, can see the port from the front door and its only a 10 minute walk to the big city avenue. front desk isn't very helpful about the city other than what bus to take.. i asked some suggestions of what to see and the girl didn't really know. breakfast was cereal or baguette - extremely limited. walls are paper thin - bring earplugs. overall, a good stay and the cheapest value in the area.
