Overall it was not bad, except for the light of the room and the stairs to get to the hostel.

Staff was very friendly but that was about the only redeeming quality of hotel paola. There weddings on my bed, Didn't feel secure in the room and the bathroom did not function properly.

Really helpful staff, very friendly even offering to go out of her way to find information on trains for us. Good location, lots nearby. Nice to have beds not bunks, and a big room although one locker was broken. We got back after our first night and the staff member said our roommate had bites from the previous night and if we would like to change rooms we could. We were fine then, but did leave the next day with MANY bed bug bites. Definitely not mosquito bites, they are very different!
