Liked: I liked the location. The staff was really friendly.

Disliked: It was really old and with a lot of things broken (like floor, walls, ceiling) and the worst was that everything was quite dirty. No curtain in the restroom window. The bed wasn't in good condition. The lockers are too small. It is supossed that american breakfast is included. They only offer white bread, butter (a piece for everyone) and fruit jelly. Even the milk is a big bottle of powdered milk. There is only a table for every one to have breakfast.

Liked: The room was exactly as described; the staff was very helpful, polite and always friendly; the location was perfect, just a block away from the metro station, and with various restaurants and pubs close by. There was a laundry room available and a spacious comunal room.

Disliked: The bathroom available was a shared one, I would have prefered a private one; but it was always clean, so it was alright.
