Good 6.0
Ok for a few nights - cheap and cheerful.
Lovely welcome from Jack - very friendly. We had the downstairs room with shared bathroom. It was small but comfy. Would have liked a bigger room. Breakfast was OK. Good to be able to make a drink of tea/ coffee when you wanted. Cold water was accessible for free too! Loved the chocolate cookies. Bout a 5-8 min walk from the Metro. Stayed 2 nights. Staff friendly.

Incredibly considerate and friendly host.
My wife and I have a newborn at home in our apartment, so we had my sister and niece stay here. They were made to feel incredibly at home and it was really convenient. I cannot recommend the considerateness and friendliness of our host more!
