    Location is good (10 minutes walk from station and 10-15 minutes walk from old town). Staff is very helpful and always smiling. The facilities are very clean, there is a full kitchen and seating areas where you can integrate with fellow travelers.

    Affordable yet very neat, comfortable and accessible. Staff are all friendly. We loved staying at the common room. Our daughter had fun with all the toys available and we were able to play Mario brothers at the retro game corner.
