Room was big for a dorm room, plus it was mostly single beds and few bunks. But there was a lack of storage space, no lockers or tables and only two hooks. Room was comfortable, and kept warm, however the hallways and bathrooms were freezing....More

Cheap place but very basic. Might be Ok for 1 night. Mattress was weak. Not much space in the room. Very slow internet and failed frequently. Parking is a bit tricky due to narrow spaces. Close to the center of this small uninteresting village.
