Each room member had a lot of space and lockers for personal things. everything seemed to be sufficiently clean. The stuff was kind and helped in cases of problems. The location of the hostel is perfect! There is nothing i would change for this hostel except the fact, that there was no fridge to store food and nothing like a breakfast room or common living room.
