Room for two is very small. Walls are thin, so you hear everything from the next room. Bathrooms were always dirty. It's very cold in rooms so you need to ask for an additional blanket. Breakfast was ok.

My only complaint is the rude manager, she should work on her soft skills. Even her staff apologized on her behalf. Very clean, staff great, location great, but if you bump into the manager... More

Hello Jodelle, Thank you very much for your feedback and your positive review. I apologize again that I was unable to allow you to shower before check-in time and that this came off as rude. As I explained, when new guests arrive to check-in before the check-out time for current guests, we can't allow full use of the facilities as... More

Excellent location. Surrounding neighborhood filled with restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, but all very untouristy. Overpriced compared to other private rooms at hostels in other cities I've stayed at. Room was very clean, shared bathroom a little so but not bad. Small and very basic room. I didn't check out the rest of the place at all so can't comment on... More
