Without instructions to do so, I copped a spray from the driver because I didn’t take my shoes off before stepping up onto the bus. Throughout the night the driver kept pulling over for what seemed like no reason. If he had to stop for a toilet break no worries, it was more likely a smoke though because the cabin stunk of cigarettes. The beds were tiny and uncomfortable, but it was the cheapest option so you get what you pay for. Id pay a little extra and get the next level up next time.

Driver smoked in the bus, light was suddenly on, no communication about the stops, bad English knowledge.
Maintaining of the seats should be more often (one was falling apart) and the hygiene of the pillows as well as the blankets is poor - probably not that often washed.

It was train travel

The train was 3h delayed and the rooms had very strong AC. The bathrooms were decent - relatively clean and with normal toilets. You need to bring your own toilet paper. The seats we chose were not available so we got different ones. It might be better to book directly with the railway to know in advance which seats are booked. The map in 12go showed all seats as available when it was not the case.

Great experience and super easy to organize.

Train was slightly late but not terribly. The beds were fine but we expected slightly more from first class. Sheets were used from previous customers and not cleaned at all. There were used baby nappies stuffed into the luggage compartment above the bed. Toilets weren't great, but they existed at least.
If you don't expect much, then you'll probably have an okay time.

I love trains. This was rough. Not any kind of VIP, not cleaned recently (ever?) and most especially the “toilet” was a horror show.
Lower your expectations, divide by 3 and you will be slightly disappointed. I love trains.

The Steats we get were not the ones we booked.

We had booked a regular sleeper but it ended up being a VIP bus so we had our own individual cabins. It was much better than expected and one of the staff on the bus was very nice and helpful. We didn’t sleep due to the rough ride but other than that there were no problems.

The staff on the train were very keen that we should be well looked after.
