    We stayed in a private room, not too big, bathroom was ok. It wasn't expensive, so I wasn't really expecting anything else. The staff was very nice and helpful though. It's central, but if you have a car, you can do better elsewhere I guess.

    Definitely younger traveler's but when I stayed there, there were a few older couples and I met a really nice man in his 60's. It can get a bit loud so if you want peace and quiet, might not be the best place
