Nice. Not that comfortable for tall people but the AC works, they give a pillow and a nice blanket. No food or water so be prepared for it!

Bed was clean, made up as we were on the train, I was on the top bunk, the lights were very bright and very close to me and the aircon made it very cold and so didn’t get much sleep at all. But for the price i paid I shouldn’t complain!

The train was clean and very comfortable. The staff was generous and very helpful. Only issue was there was no food on the train and we didn’t know that beforehand. So do carry food! Besides that everything was great.
