4 of us stayed there for 2 nights (Thu and Fri).
Quite easy to find: Turn to the right at the train station, walk straight for anout 30 metres and look to the right you will see 2 pink buildings. About 7-10 mins depends on how heavy your luggage is as you need to drag it upslope and some stairs. The rooms were clean and tidy. Staff at the reception was friendly. The first night was ok, could feel that there were not many people around. Nightmare started on the second night as there were many youngsters talking, laughing and running around, even until 3am. I couldn't sleep the whole night because of the noise. I thought it was a bad idea to stay near a big group of immature people who could not be considerate. I also did not notice that they were being told by the staff not to run in the midnight. There were no phone in the room to call to the reception to complain as well. It was also next to the railway so you will know the schedule of the cargo train because you can hear it quite clearly.
Other than the noise, it was quite alright if you are not a light sleeper.
