    Evrything else: dormitory; bathroom; bar; and especially the position.

    The breakfast room is too small for the amount of people.

    Room had no light from the street. Light in the bedroom was poor too. Room was not clean. The toilet made a very loud sound every 15 min and despite our complaints they didn't fix it or offer another room.

    Amazing location, cool environment in the lobby, nice people in the reception. They allowed us to have an early check in.

    Room was not really clean, had spider webs and heating did not work. There were no extra duvets available only a very bad and old blanket. The breakfast place was very small and dark.
