    Good location for access to centre and Ladies Market. Staff very friendly and helpful. They even provided us with a take away breakfast when we informed them we would need to check out at 5am to catch a train.

    The room we were given had a large walk-in wet room. Unfortunately the smell of the drainage system was very evident. Although one got used to after a while, it was off-putting every time we returned to the room

    It was in a reasonable location.

    The staff had some really bad attitude towards my mother. She was told they didn’t cater for food at all when they did. Rooms were not that clean. Hotels are supposed to make you feel somewhat at home, this isn’t the place for that. I guess you get what you paid for. Pennies for monkeys.

    There are only two desirable features about this property. That being the friendly nature of the staff and secondly the comfort of the beds. As for the rest. Well lets just say there are too many down sides and do not book here.

    Although the hostel (advertised as a hotel) is in a decent enough location and admittedly the beds are comfortable. This hostel was that bad we enjoyed our stay laughing. There were Romanian travelling families living in the basement, The walls are paper thin and the stairs are steep. The bathroom is a giant PVC box that stank of urine. The hotel is rightly named SHANS (Chance in English) No CHANCE would I ever stay here again and there is a good CHANCE we caught something from that bathroom.
