I quite liked my stay at the hostel. It is only 5-10 minutes to city center and the facilities were good.

Habitación grande y limpia. Baño privado y cocina para cada 6 personas. Las puertas de los apartamentos estaban abiertas por lo que todos pueden entrar en todos los pasillos y en todas las cocinas. En mi cocina no había microondas.

Die Zimmer waren leider sehr schmutzig, Staub und fremde Haare waren überall im Zimmer verteilt. Die Anmeldung im WLAN-Netz war sehr umständlich und wenig komfortabel.
