Trotz längerer Reservation und vorgängigen Kontakt war unser Zimmer vergeben. Das Personal in der Nacht schob die Schult auf uns, am nächsten Tag kam aber deutlich heraus, dass sie das Zimmer anderweitig vergeben haben. Die Dame am Tag war hilfreich bei der Suche nach etwas anderem. Trotzdem sehr ärgerlich nach 18 Stunden Bussfahrt und Mailkontakt vorher. Die Sauberkeit in dem Zimmer war nicht so, wie man es eigentlich von internationalen Hosteln kennt.
