    I did not end up staying. The description on the website did not state that there was no window in the room, so I found alternative accomodation however did not get a refund as I had already checked in.

    Not a clear description on the website that there was no window in the room and the rate was very high considering this.

    Location and friendly staff was very good.

    Not very clean. Room smelled bad and so did the bathrooms.

    Great Location!

    It's noisy. Not suitable for someone who needs a good night sleep.

    I loved how it was close to everything in the city. Also because we went for Lady Gaga we left accommodation till the last minute so the room we booked on Booked.net surf and snow emailed me saying it wasnt available and gave us options on picking other rooms which worked out well. Thank you for letting us stay (=

    Guys, It was really the worst place I have been in. Entire my life.

    Better than I expected before, the bed is comfort, the outside bathroom is clean, as the two night I stayed, it was very quiet in the room, only the city noise wake me up in the morning, but it is not the room problem, it is in the busy area in the city center. the only thing if it must be something negative, the room's window cant open, only a small space open in the top of the window. overall, it is good as a backpacker.

    I liked the location and security.

    I didn't like that you charged me extra money because Lady Gaga was in town yet I had an email confirming the price for the room.I didn't like the look of your sheets/pillow cases - they were old and disgusting looking and had discolouration on them. The pillows were brown and musty smelling.

    Is acceptable to some extent, but needs more attention to hygiene
