Went here with my mother as she is getting to a certain age now we wanted a nice comfortable room where we could chill out if needed. this was the complete opposite first it is a hike just to the reception being on the 3rd floor yes the 3rd then were told our room was another 3 floors up imagine doing that with 2 cases and a really heavy rucksack, the staff or owners (couldn't tell) were friendly but spoke no English yes I know that we were in a different country but being a place that greets foreigners on a daily basis you would think they would give it a go one man there was able to speak Russian but no English what gives. the room was nothing like the photo we ended up with a little poky thing could barely move . there was a bathroom sink and a small wardrobe and safe in. The bed was uncomfortable and part way through collapsed for which i checked and was due to something wet getting at the board (probably urine). The shower and toilet was a shared one and was next to our room so could hear everything and with our room window could see through. The sheets were changed every 2 days which I could not complain about and had clean towels everyday which was good but was not cleaned properly because we stored the cases under the bed when pulled out they were all dusty.

over all I would never want to go back and would not recommend it to anyone I know it was cheap and close to alot of attractions but I would rather pay more for a clean and comfortable bed

The location is wonderful, everything is within 25-30 minutes of walk. Although a bit noisy because of the bar outside.
Pension was very clean. They gave clean towels and bedding every 2 days.
The staff was kind and polite.
My only disappointment was the lack of a refrigerator.

Very good location, public rooms like toilet, bathroom, etc were kept very clean at all the times. The man at the reception was very friendly and helpful :)

Only bad thing about that place was that it seemed like the walls were made out of cardboard - you hear everything what's going on under your window or behind your door. And I mean everything!!! That means, it was very very noisy place. Didn't sleep much there i'm afraid :(

Rooms were basic - bed, cupboard, sink!! :) but don't really need more during holiday anyway :) so was ok. Only negative thing was that beds have saggy old mattresses. Felt rather uncomfortable.
