    I've booked in a single room for two nights but ended up staying for a week. If you don't want to spend a fortune on centrally located accommodation and just require a clean bed, shower and a secure room this is a great place to stay. The room was small but clean, basic furniture, beds are comfortable. Clean bathrooms with hot water. In house cafe. Awesome staff, very helpful. All in all very good value for money. Definitely a place to recommend!
