Ich war wirklich sehr begeistert von dem Hostel. Ich fand es super, dass es zwei Aufenthaltsräume gab, die gemütlich waren und dazu einladen, Bekanntschaften zu knüpfen. Der Billardtisch in einem der Aufenthaltsräume hat sehr dazu beigetragen andere Gäste kennenzulernen und die soziale Atmosphäre zu verstärken. Sehr genial, sollte es in jedem Hostel geben. Gut hat mir auch die Cafeteria gefallen, wo man sowohl vollwertige Mahlzeiten, als auch Snacks für wenig Geld erwerben konnte.

The heater in my room was not working, but was repaired promptly when reported. There were plenty of extra blankets. I enjoyed the welcome party Thursday evening.
