Hotel itself is located on a side street in a fairly quiet area which is good for sleep quality. The hotel is about 5-10 min walk from the main train station.
Hotel feels like a dorm because it is enormous, and has fluorescent lighting and big corridors.
We stayed three nights in a private room with a shared bathroom. The room had a sink, and also they provided towels.
Room was clean and bright, with two windows. Shared bathrooms were spacious and clean. There were three bathrooms on our side of the first floor, and it was quiet so we never had to wait to use them.
WiFi was available for free in worked in rooms. There were vending machines and a microwave available for use.
Laundry available with washing machine (50c a load) and dryer (50c for 30min), however dryer did not work well, so we needed to hang our clothes up in our room to dry.
Two supermarkets are 5min away.
Staff were polite and some spoke English.
Breakfast (7-9am) was included in the price however offered only Cornflakes, prepackaged croissants with jam and a coffee or juice.
Overall, not a bad budget option.
