we stayed in this hotel for only 1 night, but that was enough.
certainly not the place to stay for a family.
room was very very small (panda room), no place to put your things. you could only stand your backpacks on the floor and minimize the already limited space. room and beds were a bit damp, but unfortunately it was the only hostel room left (other hostels in town were full).
so we took the room which smelled strongly of cleaning agent (certainly their idea of cleanliness), but after a while you could detect a sweet rotten and mouldy smell underneath.
(must have been the smell of bed bugs but at this time we weren't aware of that)
breakfast is very cheap (toast, cheapest spread (no butter) and cheapest strawberry marmeldade) and in the eating room tv is always running.
we checked out in the morning and later we realised the bites on our daughters face.
but worst of all, we took the bed bugs with us. they had to be somewhere in our backpacks und they really specialized on our youngest one (probably the softest skin).
so if you like your rooms to be really clean (not only on first sight), staff to be friendly (didn't mention that but the guy at the reception desk was nothing of that kind), ok breakfast and no bed bugs --- stay away from railway hostel.
