Liked: Cheap to stay, food and drink menu was reasonably priced and bed linen is not charged. Friendly staff and close to main train station.

Disliked: Towel is not included and floor got me a little dirty cause it was dusty. No luggage room and breakfast staff member was kinda rude because I didn't know what I wanted within 5 seconds.... Not good layout for solo travellers.

Liked: Almost everything. The old, beautiful building, the pub, the perfect location between castle and the inner city (it's 15 minutes away from central train station), the staff (which was friendly and helpful).

Disliked: Two things. It's a little bit noisy in late evening (because of the pub). Just one big light each room, no single lights for every bed (wondering about this, because actually it's a basic)

01 October 2013 Oleg would recommend this property

Liked: Very close to city center, very cheap. Nice welcome drink, 10% discount for the bar, nice breakfasts for small extra price. Historical building, nice common room. Rather nice rooms and a very friendly bar))

Disliked: No public and coffee in the kitchen. Very strange showers. Shower is vertically hanging from somewhere very high in the ceiling. It's quite impossible to wash your body without getting the hair wet, and going to the city with wet hair in autumn is very undesirable. There were no kittens(( Staff said they've grown up and found families.
