The only thing I would have to say is that the doors are very very heavy and loud when you close them. But that's it, all the rest was perfectly perfect!

Me gustó la ubicación y la limpieza. No me gustó que me hayan cobrado 44,00 euros sin saber el concepto y utilizando mi tarjeta de crédito. Me he puesto en contacto con el albergue y con la central de reservas. El albergue no me contesta y la central de reservas se desentiende. Es la primera vez que me sucede esto y me ha decepcionado la poca formalidad de ambos para aclarar este pago.
