Hostel left unstaffed but open at front door and internal corridors for most of day and all of night. No staff for check in. Terrifying experience repeated second night despite my expectations and understanding that that would not be the case. Warden left phone number, but I mostly had no signal and no internet key to co tact anyone in case of emergency. Could not sleep for two nights. Also no proper self-catering kitchen as had been expected. Bins I emptied from previous guests, food waste I emptied from previous meals provided. Dishes left unwashed too from some previous time, throughout entire stay.

W-Lan auf Zimmern Komisch sind auch die Umsetzung der Außenanlagen. Leider kein Spielplatz. Naturnahe Anlagen sind angefangen und sehr schöne Idee, aber nicht fortgesetzt. Die Schweine sind toll.

Was man verbessern könnte: -die Ausschilderung auf dem Weg zur JH -die Preise für Getränke an der Bar. 5€ für eine Flasche Wasser ist zu viel! -das Frühstück sollte durch Obst bereichert werden

No evening meal was available (as I hadn't booked one in advance). No option on original booking to request meal anyway. No restaurants within walking distance or close by. Quiet location, very basic accommodation, I would have liked a comfortable chair!
