There is a policy at De Blauwput about NOISE made by guests, and I want to reflect on this. I stayed in a 4-bed female dorm for 5 nights with a woman who snored loudly so that I was woken 15-20 times each night, then left for the weekend and returned for one night paired again with the same woman!!! This woman should not be allowed to stay in a dorm room where despite wearing ear plugs I could not sleep well during my entire stay there. Too tired to complain.
