The hotel seems a bit scary at first, but probably that is part of the fun. As a former prison cell, my room had two bunk beds and was really small... Really, really small. But it is no big deal if one is out all day long and comes back to the hotel only for the night. Staff was pretty friendly and promptly found a different room for two friends travelling with me who got uncomfortable with a guy wearing just underwear in their room/cell. Breakfast was good and the dining room had a good vibe. Also, the hotel is well located and you are within a walking distance from all sort of nice places to see, to drink and to eat.
