Staff was so friendly! Makes a whole lot of difference when you get there knackered after the whole day of travelling ! Another good thing is that they have 2 or 3 private bathrooms in addition to one bigger common bathroom so there was no problem with waiting to take a shower.

Well located, easy to find and provided the basic needs - a bed, a toilet, washing facilities and a kitchen. Not much above and beyond that but for the price it did the basic stuff well. Even a decent spread for breakfast included.
