This is a Trusted Review. Why?
It's very inexpensive, and you get what you pay for. You have to pay 50 cents to get 7 minutes of hot water in the shower. They ask a 10 euro deposit for the linens, which is one pillow case and one sheet, both rather worse for the wear, and no covers or top sheets. It was a bit of a hike away from the main sites. One of the staff people was very nice, but the other was rather awkward and odd, and wasn't very helpful. I wouldn't stay here again.
