6/10 Good

The place of a good location but could be cleaner
The place was dirty. The first night when I arrived I saw a rat in the bathroom. The breakfast was rather poor (cornflakes, eggs, toast bread, jam) but nice there was anything at least for the first hunger. Very helpful and friendly staff, they helped me to organize the SIM cards. It was too cold at night, get well dressed for the sleep or ask for the spare blanket.
