The room was large and confortable. Anyway, I found it a bit dirty.There are many toilets so you hardly ever have to wait to go to the bathroom.

Une auberge qui au premier abord à l'air agréable mais des lits peu confortables , les chambres en sous sol qui ne sont pas du tout lumineuse et une propreté de la salle de bain catastrophique ! Mais un très bon accueil très aimable.

One young man on the reception was ok, the other older staff member was not at all friendly. The hostel is a bit grimy with things not maintained at all well- so different from experiences elsewhere; if not for the nice people in the room I shared, it would have been a very forgettable stay.
