Varier les boissons au sympathique bar pour plus d'ouverture au public.. N'étant pas une amatrice du wisky, j'étais obligée de sortir pour prendre un verre de kir, ou de Morito dans un pub. Ce qui peut faire un manque à gagner pour l'auberge, surtout pour les clients en long séjour... Pour nous, c'est un détail car le principal est déjà là.. Tout le personnel est tout simplement magic et bienveillant au quotidien.

Das Frühstück war gut, und ich hatte viel Spaß in der Bar der Herberge. Zum Umweltschutz kann ich nicht so viel sagen, gab es besonderes Recycling im Frühstücksraum? War nur eine Nacht da und kann mich nicht genau daran erinnern. Wenn es irgendeine Möglichkeit gibt, die Matratzen nicht mit komplettem Gummibezug auszustatten, wäre das toll. Finde ich unangenehm. Ansonsten waren sie fest genug, um keine Rückenschmerzen zu bekommen.

There was no heating on the day I arrive, but fixed in the 2nd day. And it was during Xmas and New Year, a freezing cold night during Xmas! And one at the front desk is super slow (and only one working for the check-in and out), so people were kept waiting for super long time. Others are fine, the location, the cleanness, room equipment, and nice roommates, etc.

La chambre était très sale pendant 3 jours ou j'étais. Personne n'a fait le le ménage. Les gens qui sont arrivés tard la nuit ont fait des bruits c'était insupportable. Sinon le petit déjeuner était très bien. C'est dommage que j'ai un mauvais souvenir à cause de la saleté et je n'y retournerai jamais :(
