This is a Trusted Review. Why?
This was all right - a bit pricy for what it is (a single room with a view of a brick wall, shared bathroom, and no lift! so you have to heft your luggage up three flights of stairs). Location is not too far from the train/ greyhound stations, but a little dodgy - walking back late at night can be intimidating. Room and bathroom were clean, and the breakfast was fine (cereal and hardboiled eggs, and surprisingly good coffee).
