I liked the room and that it was only 5 minutes walking from the centre!
I would put on the webpage, that the reception is only open until 3pm. After that you can only check in on the phone!

Really cheap hotel!
My room was not cleaned when I arrived, even though I arrived when I had indicated I would and it was several hours after the earliest possible check-in. I e-mailed them about this and even though I did not receive a reply, my room was clean when I returned from dinner. The lock function on the front door of the building is broken so it doesn't lock, and in addition the door was most of the time stuck in an open position meaning that it was clearly visible to anyone in the street that they could enter the building. The breakfast was not prepared in time, which might be a problem for anyone having for example a flight to catch. I tried to come a bit later than the indicated start time. On one occasion, there was still no coffee available 25 minutes after the start time of the breakfast hours. Apart from this the breakfast buffet is really nice with many options.

The staff on the phone was helpful and prompt in checking me in. The room was very large and roomy. The cleanliness was adequate. The location was acceptable. Breakfast was adequate but served really late (830am).
The hotel is 1 star which, in my opinion is being generous. The toilet was TINY and not even a little piece of soap or shampoo to take a shower with. Also there is no real reception and formal check-in process. Also the top "floor" (there is an extra bed on the mezzanine level in the room) is extremely dangerous if you have small, active children as they can just slide through and fall. TV wasn't working, there was no fan (got really hot and stuffy) and windows opened straight into the street.

The location was excellent and staff very friendly!
We paid 16 Euro for WiFi but the WiFi did not work in our room 401 so we eventually received our money back. The bathroom door was broken therefore we could not close it. The bed in the loft in 401 was very dangerous and my friend fell out during the night and injured herself. The stairs were very steep and the room was high up. We were only provided with 3 small towels for 5 days for 3 people. We did not receive any clean towels the whole trip or toilet roll. The bins were not emptied and we were not asked was everything ok. The glasses and mugs in our room were blue mould and stinking dirty. One glass had moulded milk at the bottom off it and there was hairs on the beds. As we were on a friends holiday we did not mind too much of the disappointments but if it were a family holiday I would of left and changed accommodation.
