    It's centrally located, though not close to any big supermarkets, only to a small convenience (more expensive) store. The staff is friendly. It's clean. Comfortable bed.

    There is a convenience store nearby but no big supermarkets. No possibility to cook, only a microwave. The kitchen doubles as a common/sitting area and is too small. They have a rule about no alcohol anywhere on the premises, not even in the kitchen!

    The room was pretty big and the beds were comfortable. We arrived pretty late but got thorough check-in information via message. It was very well located, a 10 minutes walk to the city center. The common area was small but quite comfortable.

    We didn't get to talk to any of the staff, they weren't there for the duration of our stay (2 nights). We were arriving pretty late and leaving early, so I can't blame them.

    All good.

    Excellent value. Beds were comfy, location was great

    Needed more ventilation. The room and bathroom were pretty stuffy

    bonus that they give you a free towel (albeit a small one)

    the kitchen doesn't have proper cooking facilities (no hob/oven), only kettle, toaster and microwave
