    Location was central. And staff were helpful to get laundry.

    The room had a urine odour, sheets were not clean and not good circulation of air. The shower was leaking constantly and floors were wet. The rooms were really stuffy. Should invest in air-conditioning.

    Very good location in the main square, all the sites in the center/old town are for a short walking distance. Personnel does not speak any English, but we could chat with the help of a translator. Arrived late, after 11pm, no towel, toilet paper, soap, had to ask for it. Hostel and room was overall clean. No aircon, in September it was ok, a bit warm but in summer heat it could be unbearable. There is a fan but you never find the switch without the help of the personnel. It is behind the big cupboard, if you have short hands, you won't reach it. My room had a window (facing a muddy wall after rain, with odd smell), but other rooms had no windows, no aircon, no air with closed door. Can not imagine how someone is capable to sleep in such a small airless space, especially in summer. Breakfast is from 8am. Most of the day trips are from 7 or 8am, it would be much better for the guests to start from 7am. Anyway the breakfast was not anything special, some cut sausage in red sauce, sponge cake and coffee. I was happy to have a cup of coffee with dry sponge cake before heading out for whole day trips. (nothing seemed to be open nearby before 9am)

    smell in room no English speaking personnel breakfast from 8am
