I just arrived, because it is supposed to have a parking... ...yeah- on the street.... paid during the day. So I chained my bike in the Euro-park, opposite of the place, for 10€ per 24 hr extra. They advised me another place, behind the station, but that didn't look that great I might as well sleep on the street myself,... More

Only thing good in these apartments are the location, otherwise the whole place is just a hole in the wall. The very minute you step in this "hotel" you basically sense an evil presence, from the staircase to the actual apartment. Staircase is covered with mold and cobwebs, and there was rotting smell in the rooms. Some poor soul has... More

For the price I paid (34Euros) for a single room with shared bathroom I expected much more. First I couldn't find the hostel. There's no sign whatsoever in the street or even on the front door. After 15 minutes of looking around I asked a photocopy shop (!) and as for magic the owner's phone number appeared. They told me... More

This is more like a hostel room with a very basic shared kitchen/reception room and shared bathroom with non functioning shower. I booked this place with the expectation that standards would be in the lower segment, but still was a little disappointed with what we ended up with. I didn't mind the poor kitchen area, but if you plan on... More

Pros: - communal kitchen - friendly staff - great location Cons: - we had no hot water and the staff tried to "fix" this by giving us a key to someone else's bathroom without even asking the other person, plus we had paid extra for a private bathroom which was then somewhat pointless - a very old and ugly building...
