Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
It was a room with basic bed and outside shower and toilet. first place I have ever stayed in the world that did not have tea or coffee or kettle in the room. Probably the most expensive nights sleep. The out of room facilities were adequate, You need to take everything you need in the way of food and water as there is limited places to eat after 5 pm.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Avoid it
I came to this place around 7 PM.No one met me there. The key was pinned to a board with a note. I had trouble locating my room. It was + 10 in Celsius outside and the room was cold. It had a small heater which turned itself off every half an hour and was not enough to heat up the room. The inside temperature stayed at the same level as outside at around + 10 degrees Celsius. The private toilet actually was at the open balcony. As well as shower. So at 10 degrees Celsius you could hardly use any of those. The communal kitchen was horrible and​ dirty. It was cold and without light. The kettle I tried to boil water in was dirty and had the horrible smell. I couldn't eventually use it. The next morning I left the cold room which was visited at night by wild animals who pooped everywhere and made the toilet unusable. I stopped my payment for this accommodation on my credit card. This property should be delisted. Avoid it.
