Nous avons vraiment apprécié le sauna en libre accès. Nous avons été très déçus par le rapport qualité prix : chambre petite et exiguë, mobilier vétuste, linge de lit non fourni, pièce commune peu accueillante, sanitaires pas très propre, pour 92€/nuit !! En plus l'emplacement est un peu éloigné du centre ville (20min à pied) Nous ne recommandons vraiment pas cette auberge par rapport à d'autres HI que nous avons faites.

Not easy to find the location; I didn't see one sign to the hostel. Also my GPS couldn't help me.

I like that they separated the garbage. The accommodation was okay. Nice and small room. Fantastic shower. We had to wait for the check-in even after the time it was supposed to be. Breakfast was good.

Mette, the hostess, is absolutely helpful. A pleasure meeting her. It was really nice waking up in the country side, being reasonably close to town

Loved the kitchen, the breakfast, the nice staff, the sauna. The location was a bit of a hike with a heavy bag from the city center, but it was also peaceful and beautiful. My main complaint was with security. I was alone in the dorm room for most of the stay, and I would have preferred to have a bit more privacy such as a key to my room (I think I could have asked for one) and it felt a bit weird to be the only girl there and have guys coming into the kitchen to talk to me a lot... bit creepy.
