Leider war die Küche sehr veraltet, runter gekommen und schlecht ausgestattet. Außerdem gab es im Keller keinen gescheiten Gemeinschaftsraum und das Badezimmer mit einem Loch in der Decke hat einen jetzt auch nicht so zum duschen eingeladen. Toll war jedoch dass wir nach checkin Zeiten trotzdem einchecken konnten.
