This is a Hostel. No private bathroom offered. Should not be advertised with other Hotels. We left after seeing room but were forced to leave payment for for room because of Expedia's policy. We are requesting a refund and suggest you not advertise this Hostel with hotels as an equivalent. It was a very embarrissing experience.

A great central place to stay
A great one night stay. Very convenient for the city centre, for bars, restaurants etc. An interesting mix of hotel and hostel. Nice to mix with other guests at shared breakfast tables. It was the first time I have washed my own breakfast dishes in a hotel, but nothing wrong with that!! It is good to step out of one’s comfort zone occasionally😁😁😁👌

Not too bad.
Good place to stay for a cheaper price in the DT. Breakfast included. Friendly staff. Room was clean. Has a hostel feel but my room was private with an ensuite. Not sure how the other rooms would be.
