    It was an easy to walk to from the main train station. When I arrived I was greeted by a friendly staff member who was able to answer all my questions. The only thing that caught me off guard was the sheets and a towel costed me an extra 6.00! Other than that the location was great and the showers were big and clean! I reccommend this place to anyone whose easy going and is looking for an adventure :)
