Firstly the location is great, walk to everything if you wanted to but also close to central metro lines. We had a private room and discovered this is in a completely separate building around the corner which thankfully was much quieter, with some friends staying in the shared rooms moving hostels due to the excessive noise in the main building. However this was annoying because there was no fridge in the private room building and breakfast was served in the main building so we never went. Room was pretty filthy really, carpet had not been vacuumed for god knows how long and there were hair balls on the floor, chewed gum stuck on the wall and even a half empty bottle of wine. The sink in the room was disgusting and we were too scared to use it apart from getting water out of the tap. It appears the only 'cleaning' they do is changing your sheets when you get there then they leave you to it in your filthy room. If it wasn't for this it would be a really good place but I would hesitate in staying again and would look at other options around the same area.
