Liked: while I was there someone got about 200$ stolen from a backpack, they were accusing one of the cleaning guys. We din't have any problems, maybe because we where very carefull with our stuff and allways caried the money with us. I don't think is the most secure place but for the money is great.

Disliked: The place is nice for the price, its right in the red light district.wi

Liked: The staff were brilliant, really friendly and helpful. Showed us the best places to go gave out maps, look after all your valuables behind the counter etc. Everything is very high quality and so a really good place to stay. Location was really good in terms of being able to walk to everywhere and didn't need any public transport.

Disliked: Location probably wasn't the best safety wise as its borderline red light district with coffee shops opposite. When coming back from nights out at 3am there would be quite a lot of junkies to walk past but we never had any actual problems and it is well lit/fairly busy. Also there's only one key per room so you have to rely on other people waking up when you knock to let you in!
