Hello and thank you for taking the time to write a review! Our complimentary breakfast is always a great start to the day and for more options there are many nice Restaurants in the area which have amazing food. I am glad you found the team to be friendly and you enjoyed the environment. The dorm rooms do not have individual heat control, so we try for a good temperature which satisfies all. Hope you come and visit us again. Maicke/Hostel Manager
