Please consider adding many more hooks for wet things! Also, one bunk bed did not have a ladder to get to the top bunk.

Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen, für die Reise wurden uns auch gute Tipps gegeben. Es wurde darauf geachtet, dass in der Jugendherberge eine freundliche Atmosphäre herrschte. Tagsüber stand auch Kaffee kostenlos zur Verfügung.
