The location is great. I have to emphasize that two ladies at the reception were very polite and kind, thanks to them we have felt a relief the last day of our staying at the hotel as we could leave our luggage till the time of our train departure and have got some valuable information of how to get to some city locations. Thank you for that.
This place is called hotel, but I can not say that it looks like and functions like hotel...the room the we have got was not a part of the hotel building but some auxiliary built rooms in a separate small outdoor location. We had to put the curtains all the time as everybody passing by could look into the room, but bigger problem was the use of showers. Actually, the bathrooms had showers but to take a shower one had to get out the shower and turn on the water on the switch that is located in the dormitory, then to put the shower gel on one has to go again from the bathroom to the dormitory, to switch off the water, and of course to wash off the shower gel you should repeat the procedure. So you have to go from the bathroom to the dormitory several times which is annoying and depressing :( Simply put, if you travel alone you have a big problem, and this seems like a solution for showering from some earlier centuries... If you want to wash your face or teeth, you have to chose between extremely hot water or cold water, as there are two faucets, and to get the water on each of them you have to hold it with one hand while washing the face and teeth with other....:( Another problem is that if you need an adapter you will not get it on the reception, you have to buy it, they do not give a damn if it is midnight and you need to charge your batteries urgently or need to dry your hair...and of course, there is no dryer in the room, if you have not taken it with you from your home....well that is also your problem. And, if you need Wi Fi at that precise location where we had a room (let's call that a room) you will not get it (there is no possible way to connect to it!), although it is free and u can use it at the reception only....in total, it was very, very disappointing experience.
