Le personnel très aimable. Propreté de la chambre et des sanitaires impeccables. À améliorer : la cuisine commune trop petite. La poubelle de la cuisine n'est pas pratique à utiliser; il faudrait une poubelle avec pédale.

Sehr angenehme Atmosphäre und eine super Lage. Die Zimmer mit dem Blick in den Kreuzgang des Klosters sind schon etwas Besonderes. Dann gab es noch eine einfaches aber sehr gutes Frühstück.

A truly outstanding hostel at a World Heritage Site! Outstanding village, this is possibly the best hostel out of around 100 that I have stayed at!
