Staff very friendly. Possibility to use hostel's boiler, tea and sugar. Clean bedding. Good wi-fi connection.
Smell in the rooms. Poor taste in decorating.
The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom had everything one may need and it was also clean. There are two supermarkets nearby and the bus station is across the street. Pretty far from the city centre, but the bus runs regularly.
The most annoying thing was the squeak of the beds. The quality of the mattress is low and you can feel the springs. The host burns too much incense in the lobby and sometimes the air is too heavy. The windows look directly in the street so there is too much noise early in the morning.
The room is big and clean, neat and tidy. There's a microwave oven which helped us a lot. There is a big Maxima XX supermarket just outside the hotel.
We arrived early (waited from 8am to 10am) and found out that there was no reception. Luckily a tenant let us in to drop down the luggage and let us call the household. We could not call him as we did not have a local sim card. It is far away from city center, but there is a bus (route 50) just outside.
Young couple managing the hostel were keen and enthusiastic and very keen to assist, even with discussions about national history and the town generally. Good and comfortable inside Two supermarkets across the road.
Appears as a small box in a very ordinary suburban setting. Awkward front entrance and no direct access from the rear carpark.
- WiFi works perfectly - stuff was very friendly - microwave accessible in reception - kettles can be taken from reception to the room - big parking behind hostel
- no AC so top floor room is hot during summer - bathroom is easy to flood - power sockets in wrong places
Two shops near hostel. Hairdryer and all for tea. The room was warm even in cold weather.
Quite far from the city center, you need to go by bus (10 minutes of waiting + 15 minutes of trip) instead of walking (1 hour). View wasn't good (to the road and supermarket).
