Backpacking / gap year, Sightseeing & culture

Liked: It was fairly well located and the best for our budget. Good wifi.

Disliked: Not very clean, the floor in our room was dusty, and covered in hair and also crumbs from previous occupants. The bed was not that comfortable and the pillows were essentially rocks in bags. (Plus there were only three pillows for two people. The ceiling fan made a loud clicking noise on every rotation of the fan, so it was either difficult to sleep, or keep cool. The "curtains" were props and so even though there was a window blind it didn't cancel out any light, especially from first thing in the morning (I.e. 04:30)

Liked: It was very basic but clean, and good location.

Disliked: The heating was on continuously and there was no way of regulating it. This made it very warm and the air extremely dry. Even with the window open it was barely tolerable and we resorted to putting wet towls on the radiatior to get some moisture into the air.
