  • Disliked: Staff & service, room comfort

It is really a hostel. Very infrequent room service, no toiletries or kettle in the room, very slow WiFi, interrupting television service. Most importantly, we were not prewarned that there is a pub with live music next door, which causes enormous amount of noise till 5am three nights a week

Stayed 4 nights in Jul. 2019
