"Pick a room away from the street"
"Book early in season and weekends. This place fills up."
"I stayed in a private room on the second floor which was nice."
"During the slow season you may get a dorm room to yourself!"
"Try and get a room with floor to ceiling windows. Beautiful sunrises and effective window shades for those who want to sleep in."
