Central, clean and cheap. Have stayed here twice and both times have been with a room overlooking the pedestrianised stree to the rear. This street is great to watch from your balcony and it looks way pretty with all the balconies and plants. Having a couple of beers of a night on your balcony is nice too but if there's a group of students in a nearby room it's probably best to have your window shut at lights out. The day staff aren't going to make it onto my christmas card list but neither are they on my hate list. However, the old dude on the nightshift is mint. I think he might have just been humouring us with our terrible Spanglish but he did always have a smile. The rooms are really basic but really clean with an en suite, there's also a common room upstairs for if you want to mingle with the other guests.
Downstairs is the amazing eatery Maoz falafel for a late night munch fest and there's a sharwarma place just down the road. Every morning we would pop out and get coffe and pastries from a little bonbonaria on the pedestrianised street and that was pretty much morning heaven.
