Good value for your money. But, quite a walk from the train station, not super clean (don't look behind your bed! & a big stain on my sheets) Friendly staff, all facilities are there, just not very modern and new anymore.


Very good backpack !!


We arrived 30 minutes after the official end of the check-in time, which fortunately wasn't a problem whatsoever. The staff we met was nice, friendly, helpful and beautiful. There is a large and reasonably well-equipped kitchen that, unfortunately, at the time we stayed there the guests did not keep overly clean. There are 3 bathrooms (shower and WC) and one separate WC, which, especially in the morning, is nowhere near sufficient for the number of guests that can stay in this accommodation.

The stay was OK however the main bathroom floors were always wet and we were woken up in the middle of the night by rowdy guests downstairs. Location was alright and short walk to the town centre, although we did have to move our cars to avoid fines in the morning.
