I'd read a bunch of reviews here on TripAdvisor and was terrified the hotel was going to be terrible. Thankfully it wasn't as bad for me as for other people. I booked a room without an ensuite, but luckily I did actually get a shower in my room at no extra charge. I was on the second floor (room 100, overlooking the street). It's *tiny*. It has bunk beds and barely enough floor space to lay down my suitcase, let alone if there were two people staying here! I have to move my suitcase around to access the door/sink/shower.
The toilet is a few doors away. As other reviewers have said, it's tiny also, but at least you don't have to do gymnastics to reach the toilet paper behind you like a lot of hotels do.
As for my room, it does seem clean so no complaints there. The only hitch was the window which wouldn't lock. They "fixed" it on my second day but now it only opens vertically which means the ventilation isn't as good. So the room is quite warm, almost uncomfortably so.
As others have said the stairs are *very* steep, so don't book this hotel if you have any mobility issues. That said, the guy on reception did help me with my suitcase.
By far the best thing about this hotel is its central location. I was in and out all day today because it was just in the middle of everything and so easy to pop in and dump stuff you've picked up during the day.
If you're a sensitive sleeper it may be a little noisy, but I just put in earplugs and had no problems whatsoever.
