Wohl ein generelles Hostel-Problem: Die Töpfe und Pfannen in der Gemeinschaftsküche sind leider stark abgenutzt. Dadurch brennt das Essen darin schnell an, was die Pfannen weiter beschädigt. Im Vergleich zu anderen Hostels muss man jedoch sagen, dass die Küche sehr sauber, aufgeräumt und gut in Schuss ist! Das könnte daran liegen, dass sie sehr offen und vom Essbereich einsehbar ist. So fühlt man sich eher verantwortlich, alles ordentlich und sauber zu hinterlassen! ;)

I thought the overall experience was very good. I liked that there was a currency conversion option and the community style kitchen was also nice. Very friendly atmosphere, There were a wide range of ages there which I liked as well. I do think they should better check which room they assign people to because someone took my bed that my things were next to. Also I would have liked a small hand Towl in the bathroom.

The desk staff was friendly and informative...and a joy to deal with. The location was excellent...and the price was certainly right. The free breakfast was good, too. My only issue was not unique to Sleepzone...and it has to do with reliable WiFi. Most of the time the hostel WiFi was sketchy at best. Since more and more of us rely on Wifi to remain connected while travelling I'm unclear as to why this can't be ungraded...especially in bunk rooms.

The room,with a skylight, was completely ventilation. Otherwise we would be happy to return.
