The good thing I can say is that the people are very friendly and helpful and the location is a 5 min walk to the town centre. The rest, I'm afraid, is not so good. At least 4 floors, no elevator so keep in mind if heavy luggage. The room, while clean, had its issues. The ensuite bathroom which you had to step up into was a little over 2ft by 7ft. Because the window blind had several slats missing, you had to be careful when exiting the bathroom in a state of undress because you would be clearly seen from the houses across the street. I turned the light off and dressed by moonlight. You also had to keep the bathroom door closed for the very same reason. Not good if you're claustrophobic. The free WiFi was extremely sporadic, very annoying. The TV was difficult to figure out with its 2 remotes. Whichever channel I changed, stayed on the same program but the channel numbers changed. The image could barely be seen and there was no adjustment button on either remote or the TV itself to adjust it. Walls incredibly thin, you can hear EVERYTHING from the room next door. If I wasn't so exhausted each night, I probably wouldn't have slept well. The last day I returned to my room, the door was not fully shut. Fortunately nothing was missing.
