After that ... you have to pay to leave your luggage, the room is okay and they provide you new towel every day ( but I leave the 'please do not disturb' on my door and someone came what I didn't really appreciate).

Only stay a few nights as it's pretty basic and tired even if the location is great. Think next time I will couch surf or Air b&b rather than this place! Helpful staff though and easy to find some decent local diners to have breakfast out.
