Ich fühlte mich sehr willkommen. Die Ordnung und Reinlichkeit der Gäste entspricht nicht meinen Erwartungen (Küche). Die Herbergsleute setzen alles daran, Abfalltrennung, die Gäste machen nicht mit. Aber die Gäste sind lustig und Fidel.(die 20-25jährigen Teenies).

Ich fühlte mich zu Beginn sehr willkommen, und das blieb dann auch so. Die Abfallbewirtschaftung könnte seitens der Gäste besser sein. Es ist alles gut gekennzeichnet, auch wer die Sprache nicht kennt. Wenn etwas am Aufenthalt zu bemängeln ist, sind das die unordentlichen Gäste.
