It's a bit hard to judge here because the hotel is really well located (although in the middle of the red light district, and it might put lots of ppl off straight away). You can walk pretty much everywhere and it's less than 10 minutes walking from the train station. We were five and never felt unsafe.

On the down side... beds are not good at all, shared showers/toilets are always busy and never really clean.

It's very cheap and if you are young and looking for some fun and a cheap place to stay, go for it, otherwise you should most likely try somewhere else. I don't think I'd stay there again, unless I was 18 again!

Rooms smallish but very clean and tidy, great shower and breakfast, staff brilliant, loved the location close to Central Station, the canal and lots of great food. We loved it and the red light district was just beside this but the girls were all friendly and pleasant and livens the place up at night. Loved it can't wait to go back, brilliant and the new receotion looks great, the dining room is good but maybe they could do with blinds on the back window as it just looks straight into one of the girls windows, it could be off putting if you are narrow minded, xxx Loved the boy at reception he was so friendly, xx

stayed here a year ago, and couldnt fault it.

very friendly staff, we arrived before we could actually check in, we were offered free breakfast and they stored our luggage until we could get into our room.

very basis rooms but i found it to be the most comfortable nights sleep id had in a long time,

great advice given by the staff on which shops to visit and which areas to avoid. will definately return to this hotel.

stop your moan people, you get what you pay for!

Myself and a group of 18 friends booked the hotel brian to find when we got there the 'hotel' had been brought out and our booking had been lost. With this in mind the owner then decided he could only put us up for 1 night charging us £50 Euros each instead of the £35 Euros we agreed when booking. The owner is only after a quick buck, once your money is handed over he doesnt care less... I strongly advise not staying there, only interested in getting your money, complete dive..!!!!

We stayed there for 6 nights and found the place absolutely awful and we have stayed in some dives. The first room was described as double but was obviously a single with a larger bed so the door would only open a little, less than halfway, and the window was about 2m from floor. Next room was even smaller but with a canal view window, door opened but washbasin meant having to sidle past to get out, useful in a fire alarm. The communal shower had no shower head, the plaster was missing from corners, no cleaning of room in all the time we were there and when we complained were told "But we are a small hotel" which translated as "what do you expect for the money?"
Spend a couple of Euros more and avoid this place.
