The room was alright, just a little old and worn, but guess it can't be helped given that it's an old building. The main issue we had was with bedbugs! My friend slept in the lower...

We stayed here for a few nights and it was a good choice. We stayed in a private double room with ensuite. The room was clean and big. The hotel was walking distance of everything, and was fairly quiet for a hostel.

The building has a lot of its original features intact and we...
