Loved it! Great location, super clean. Stayed here once in the dorms and it was great, but booked a private room this time with my partner and it was even better. Sometimes a little noisy, but after being so tired from travelling we fell asleep immediately anyways. Loved the breakfast and the breakfast room (such nice windows!) Wish I would have interacted more with people on our a floor, but that will have to be saved for next time.
