Nette, eher kleine Jugendherberge. Zimmer sehr komfortabel, aber keine Aufhängemöglichkeit für feuchte Kleidung Sauberkeit: Zimmer sehr sauber, Dusche leider etwas schimmlig Lage: wie erwartet gut, fußläufige Entfernung zum "Zentrum" des Ortes. Umweltschutz: In der Küche waren getrennte Behälter für Kompost, Verpackungen, Glas usw. zu finden, aber leider kein Restmüll...? Sehr positiv: vielseitiges Frühstück, das extra für uns auch noch früher bereitgestellt wurde!

die Sanitäranlagen waren unter Standard, nicht genug Waschraum, Toilettenabtrennung nicht vorhanden, keine Abstellmöglichkeit im Zimmer, Lage sehr schön, zum Abenteuerurlaub sehr geeignet.

Our room was close to kitchen and dinning area, I would recommend a notice about nose, i.e. 10pm - 7am, should be placed to remind guests.

Bei unserer Ankunft war das Hostel geschlossen, der Betreiber machte am Handy einen betrunkenen Eindruck und konnte immer nur lallend mit "Today we are closed!" antworten - das war Schlichtweg eine Unverschämtheit!!! Die 3,36€ für die Anzahlung sollte er für die Reinigung vor dem Hostel bzw. für Kopfschmerztabletten wegen des vielen Alkohols verwenden. Bitte tun Sie sich und Ihren Kunden einen Gefallen und streichen Sie dieses Hostel von Ihrer Liste.
