Schade, dass es keine Küche/Küchenecke gab, in der man sich einen Tee kochen konnte. Wir konnten aber kochendes Wasser aus der Cafeteria bekommen! Die grüne Bewertung hat deshalb nur zwei Punkte, weil beim Frühstück mit Plastikbechern/-löffeln gearbeitet wurde - ansonsten kann ich das bei einer Nacht nicht beurteilen.

The hostel/hotel did not have the usual busy atmosphere of backpacking youngsters. Even though there was no kitchen facilities there were very reasonably eating facilities nearby. There was no leaflets to inform you of local or nearby attractions; nor how you could get around. Only by chance did I find out about the trips available. No English books to read, nothing for children. The free breakfast was rather sparse for westerners, cornflakes, 2xjuices, eggs of some kind, rather dry rolls & only white bread for toast. The rest was what Arabic people must eat, what we would have for dinner. No fruit. Generally no atmosphere or chance to meet other travellers.

Die Wegbeschreibung ist supoptimal! Taxifahrer finden trotz Adresse die Jugendherberge nicht! Tipp mit Metro : Green line bis Stadium! In Richtung etisalat Station links verlassen und ca 300 m entlang der El Nadha Road

Der Gesameindruck war gut. Die Außenanlage war gepflegt. in Zimmern kleinere Mängel, aber laufende Renovierung zu sehen Klimaanlage (etwas laut) und Kühlschrank waren vorhanden, was possitiv war, der Getränkeverkauf war super und preiswert, eder 24 Std.-Dienst an der Rezeption war super. Schön wäre es noch wenn kostenlose Stadtpläne, Metropläne, und Hinweise darauf in der Herbergerge ausliegen würden. Gute Verbindung zum internationalen Flugplatz, zur Metro, zum Taxistand, zum Supermarkt.
