City break

Liked: The owners are very nice and kind-hearted. It's also quite clean.

Disliked: It's literally located next to the rail tracks, freight trains are loading/unloading till late at night and early morning.. Also nothing included in the price - you have to pay for linens, towels, etc.. The 8-dorm room only has 1 electric plug, so no place to charge your electronics.
