Liked: the place is near the train station and a 20 min. walk to the attractions, but the thing that i liked the most is the staff!. they always wear smile in their face and always ready to help you. the bar area was great i loved the structure and the atmosphere inside i think that they had just renovated the bar bec. there are still some workers working. over all great stay and for sure i will be coming back to stay again! salute to all the staff!.

Liked: Clean enough, staff was friendly and helpful, easy to find, good location.

Disliked: I stayed here in the 'low season,' so things weren't exactly as described on the website. The bar was under renovation, which meant no breakfast, free pizza at night, or pub crawls. As a lone traveller, the bar was the reason I booked here, in hopes of meeting others. When the bar is up and running, I'm sure it's a lively place, and worth the money.... but there was no warning on the website that it was closed.

Liked: Marble entrance way looks very italian. Easy to find and close to station. big lockers in room and comfy beds.

Disliked: no proper social area (ie tv lounge) other than the bar. Internet very slow..wireless even slower. breakfast not included in price (qhich is expensive over new year!) only one shower/toilette per dorm room and no spare ones in the corridor so long waits! key card system for lights caused annoyance and confusuion
