場所がいいだけ、あとは今まで経験したことがない最低ランク。 スタッフはほとんどいない。聞きたいことがあってもなにも対応できない。 チェックアウトした客のベッドはそのままの状態で放置されていた。 薄い夏掛けが1枚で夜寒くて寝ていられない。 2泊予約入れていたが、チェックインの時に2泊目をキャンセルしたいと言ったらキャンセル料が100%かかると言われた。確か24時間前までキャンセル料不要のはずだが。 チェックアウト時も鍵をボックスに入れておけと、スタッフ不在であった。 立地以外は最低であった。

The location is perfect, just in the centre. The staff quite kind and professional. Things to be improved (in a constructive way): bed's mattresses (shabby and less comfortable) and the noise caused by other guests.

Das Hostel war das Geld absolut nicht wert. Zimmer, Küche, Bäder waren absolut dreckig, man hat durch die hellhörigen Wände alles im Flur gehört, die Ruhezeiten wurden von den anderen Gästen nicht beachtet und keiner vom Hostel hat sich um die Einhaltung gekümmert, lediglich mit einem Ventilator ausgestattet war es viel zu warm im Zimmer, die Betten waren unbequem. Beim Einchecken wurde uns der Rabatt mit den Jugendherbergskarten verwehrt, den wir erst 2 Tage später nach mehrmaligem Nachfragen doch noch erhalten haben. Der Rezeptionist beim Einchecken war auch nicht sonderlich motiviert uns zu helfen oder uns freundlich zu empfangen. Das WLAN hat zu 95% der Zeit nicht funktioniert, WENN man es denn überhaupt mal im Zimmer empfangen konnte. Zusammengefasst war der Aufenthalt in dem Hostel der Horror und ich würde nie wieder dort hingehen, erst recht nicht bei dem unverschämt hohen Preis.
