I booked it because of the price but this is just a shit**** with good advertisement :)
Well the standard is the lowest I have ever seen and I travel a lot. You have to share the toilet and bathroom with a lot of different rooms and wait in line if you are unlucky...
Affordable accommodation, quiet and sufficiently clean, not too far from the train station and the city center. My room had a basic furniture, which including a fridge, a tv, a microwave oven, a small desk, a couple of chairs and other stuff. The room was small, but still OK. The ventilation system worked fine. The bed was comfortable. The mattress and the pillowcase were not perfectly clean, but still acceptable. The sheets were perfectly clean and smelled good. The towels clean and new. The showers and the toilets (all shared, in the corridor) were clean too. I never had to wait to use them. The hotel is at the 11th floor (actually, 10th, as in Finland ground floor is 1), but there are 4 fast elevators. No problems with the key codes. Overall, I am satisfied.
As I wrote, I was happy with this place. However, here are a few remarks, based on the experience in my room (other rooms might be different). There are blinds at the windows, but not dark curtains. During the night is fine, but if you wish to sleep after the sunrise, it might be useful to have something to cover your eyes. I got two towels, but no small carpet for the shower (minor issue). There was a lamp on the bedside cabinet, but it was too far from the electric socket. There are signs that help you in finding the hostel, but I arrived late in the night and it took me some time to find the entrance. The easiest option, in my opinion, is to reach the hostel by taking the pedestrian bridge that crosses the main road and then turn right.
Okay place for a short stay.
Toilets and shower is in the hallway. The sheets were worn out.
Not so far from the city center in a walking distance. Nice lofty style rooms. Own fridge is available, as well as dishes in own cupboard. Parking lot available. Supermarket is one step aside. Quiet district. Vert nice view from the window.
Long email replies (approx. 2 work days per question) Small and uncomfortable pillows. Full self-service. Very cold and windy room. Neither air conditioner nor heating were not working. Hostel has free wi-fi, but its speed is quite pour, suitable only for messaging.
