Liked: It is located in the city center, so you can see a lot by just walking. The stuff was really friendly and the breakfast was pretty good, especially when there were free pancakes.

Disliked: Unfortunately our second room was a bit small for 6 people, with little light in the room and it was hard to keep the air fresh. Otherwise, no complaints really.

Disliked: quite noisy in the room even with closed windows since college street is still busy (traffic) even at 3a.m. soom rooms do not face college street, these might be the better choice (if available)
