L'emplacement de l'auberge est idéal pour se déplacer en centre ville à pieds. L'endroit est propre par contre il n'y a pas de moyen pour se préparer ses propres repas. Un repas est bien proposé mais je l'ai trouvé cher et les horaires ne me correspondait pas. Dans la chambre seulement 2 prises dont une se trouve dans la salle de bain, un peu juste pour 4 personnes. Le rideau n'est pas très occultant. Il y a une penderie mais rien pour enfermer ses affaires, la confiance doit être de mise.

Es gibt keinen Internet im Zimmer. Es ist wirklich nicht bequem. Und auch die Steckdose, im Zimmer gibt es nur ein Steckdose für vier Menschen !! Im Badezimmer gibt es auch eins, aber wenn die Person duschen, kann man sie nicht benutzen. Sie müssen mehr Steckdose anbieten, bitte! Ich mag die Music, es immer dabei, es war schön.

Good location. The staff was good. The room was clean, but It didn't have enough electric slots. It's very important to have your own electric slot near to bed in order to charge your phone, tablet, etc. We had to share only one electric slot between four people.
