The apartment is not the one showed in the pictures on Booking. The bed sheets were broken and dirty.The double bed room has a tiny bed (for two children), it is humid with a strong mouldy smell. Moreover you do not have space for your luggages or only for changing. In this room you have a sort of wardrobe but... More

Had a small room without bins and offensively bad artwork, with a disgustingly dirty floor. Did not want to walk around bare foot. Sheets seemed very old, and I got bitten alot. Door seemed... More

It's accessible via public transportation, but a bit of a walk if you are carrying luggage. It's close to grocery stores and some shopping,... More

Stay well away! Having travelled around Europe staying in basic hostels twice before I can safely say this one was by far the worst. Staying in the private double room I found the walls were filthy, electrical fittings exposed, and the room only part cleaned (I found earrings left over from a previous tenant). I made the stupid mistake of... More
