Private rooms seem worse value than dormitories, as they are located in a barrack on the roof of a building (=cold, not functional). Unfortunately, both the room and shared bathroom were pretty dirty (including a lot of dust on furniture). The conditions were so upsetting that I decided to leave after one night only as opposed to the initially booked three nights, even though I paid the entire amount upfront, and I am not so keen on wasting money.
