inconvenient that lockers are not in the room themselves but downstairs hostel difficult to find,after the sign at the station no more signs to follow untill the sign at the hostel itself,why not put a few more signs up between station and hostel?

Some staff were very helpful, some not interested, bored. Breakfast was very good. Location great for old city. I would stay again, but think the cost is a bit high. I enjoyed my stay, room was ok and quiet.
