This place is very odd- but I booked as it was a lot cheaper than anything else in the area at short notice. The place bills itself as a European style hotel but I have stayed in lots of European hotels which are nothing like this...
The rooms are clean, and the shared bathrooms also, in general clean, although at least for me they were not cleaned every day. The breakfasts were adequate, without being fancy. The staff were functional, although not 24 hours, so make sure you don't have a problem or want to arrive in the limited hours.
Location was very convenient for express bus to town centre, or for the University district. The area is interesting, lots of cheap places to eat, but did feel a little threatening after dark occasionally...
The rooms themselves were comfortable, felt like being in a college dorm. The only real complaint was that the hotel was a little noisy due to time of its construction, and location on the main road.
In all, I would stay again if the price were right; it reminds me very much of a British bed and breakfast in about 1984, in that everything is cheap, functional, but you don't expect or need a lot of service. Difficult to give this place a good or bad review, did pretty much what was expected, but I shan't remember it fondly.
