3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Room comfort
Nice room, bad beds, not a nice area of the city
The room is a small student dorm room with hobs, microwave, bathroom and all looked nice. However, the beds were uncomfortable - they were very soft and dipped in the middle after a short while in them. The place itself is nice and clean and looks new. There are ping pong and pool tables and areas to socialise. The only other issue was the location. It's not a nice place to walk back to at night. We paid 99€ for the night and for that money I would expect comfortable beds.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
The room had a bad smell. It looked nothing like the photo of the room in the advertisement. The shower/tub were so small it were unsafe. The staff was friendly and helpful. For the price.. I guess it was ok.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Not my piece of cake.
The place is well located, but even if the service is friendly, it is too inefficient. Checking in took some 10 minutes. Breakfast is included, and it is breakfast until 11, but bu 9:45, on both days I stayed there, there Ema as nothing left but toast and coffee. They ran out of everything else. My second morning, by 10 there was not even toast. Just coffee. Showers are uncomfortable, slippery and involve a minor climb into slippery surface. The street it is on is noisy, and if you plan to go back past 1 am expect to be harassed by street prostitutes.
